Rick Ankiel Returns

The one-time St. Louis Cardinals pitching phenom is back in the big leagues as a power-hitting outfielder. Seven years after tying a record by throwing five wild pitches in one inning of a playoff game and permanently losing the ability to throw strikes, Rick Ankiel returned to the major leagues as an outfielder, hitting a home run in his first game. Hey, Babe Ruth started as a pitcher too.
