Pirates | Russell Martin playing SS

Pittsburgh Pirates C Russell Martin is likely to be Team Canada's shortstop in this year's World Baseball Classic. Martin was an everyday third baseman in the minor leagues, but he's never played shortstop. "I like to prove people wrong," Martin said. "I'm going to do what I feel like doing. I feel like playing shortstop. It's a selfish move from my part. But it's what I love to do. Sometimes you've got to do what you feel like doing for yourself. And I want to do it."
