Has there ever been a left handed second baseman?

We have to confine our answer to the major league level. Yes, in the majors, there have been left-handers who played second base, shortstop and third base. Wee Willie Keelar, a Hall of Famer, played second base, third and shortstop 71 times over his 19-year career from 1892 through 1910. Hal Chase, normally a first baseman, played 36 games at second base between 1905 and 1916. Bill Hulen of the 1896 Phillies played 73 games at shortstop and two at second base in his only season with the club. First baseman Don Mattingly of the Yankees played one game at second base in 1983 and three games at third base in J, 986 despite being left-handed.


Has there ever been a left handed fielding player in the major leagues to play third second short stop or catcher?

I'm not aware of any lefties who have played these positions regularly, but there have been situations where left-handers played them in emergency situations. Don Mattingly had to substitute at third base for the Yankees in the late 80's when their regular third baseman was hurt. Mike Squires (who like Mattingly, usually played first base) caught for the White Sox once in the early 80's.


Has there ever been a left-handed third baseman shortstop or second baseman?

Yes, sort of. I don't know of any who both bat and throw left, but there are a few who bat left and throw right. Current examples of left-hand hitting third basemen include Hank Blalock http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0FCI/is_7_63/ai_n6108322 and Russ Branyan http://www.baseball-reference.com/b/branyru01.shtml Don Mattingly played one game in 1986, Mike Squires played one game in 1983

Is Mike Schmidt the best third baseman to ever play baseball?

He is definately the most decorated, and one of the best. It is up for debate whether he is the best ever at 3rd base.

Has a hit not an error ever been called on a ball that went through a third baseman's legs?

The decision on whether a batted ball is a hit or an error lies solely with the official scorer. Over the history of the game there has probably been an instance when a hit was given to a batter when the ball went through a fielder's legs although I personally cannot recall ever seeing it.
