On June 27, 1939, Eddie Miller of Boston played twenty-three innings at shortstop and handled twenty-one chances setting the major league record for most chances by a shortstop in an extra inning game!
The longest games with no chances offered to a shortstop? Twelve innings! John Gochnaur of Cleveland on July 14, 1903, Irv Ray of Boston on August 15, 1888, and Billy Rogell of Detroit on June 16, 1937!
Frankie Crosetti and Honus Wagner are the only two shortstops to ever play a game on Opening Day and not receive a single chance at shortstop!
