It's hard to believe considering his rotund body type, but Kevin Mitchell was originally an infielder, playing third base and even shortstop. In 1989 Upper Deck captured his fielding form in this great shot.
The back is even better, not so much for Mitchell, but for Paul Blart, Stadium Cop wearing the shortest necktie ever.
Mitchell had all the grace of a brontosaurus and was later moved to the outfield, where he made a famous barehand catch of a fly ball in St. Louis.
