Since the 2017 Tigers season was essentially a clown show, you may as well end things in a circus fashion.

In the final game of the season this Sunday in Minnesota, utility man Andrew Romine will play all nine-positions throughout the game. This is according to Jason Beck of MLB.com who’s citing outgoing manager Brad Ausmus.

Ironically enough having a player play all nine spots at some point during the game isn’t unfamiliar for a shitty Tigers team who have nothing to play for. In fact the last team to do this were the Tigers back on October 1st of 2000 when Shane Halter went out and played all nine positions on the diamond while netting himself four hits, three RBI and the game-winning walk-off run.

Likewise, Romine – if he does in fact play all nine positions Sunday – will become only the fifth MLB player to do so behind Bert Campaneris of the Kansas City Athletics (Sept 8, 1965), Cesar Tovar of the Minnesota Twins (Sept 22, 1968), Scott Sheldon of the Texas Rangers (Sept 6, 2000) and of course the aforementioned Shane Halter.

With the season lost at the All-Star break with nothing really on the field worth watching, I guess this is a nice cheap way to gain viewers as the Tigers mercifully end their 2017 campaign.
