In our last post, we mentioned the ESPN Baseball Today podcast from last Friday, in relation to the question of whether there had ever been any lineup that included all 26 letters. That podcast also had an e-mailer offering up his “all-sitcom” lineup, featuring sitcom character names that are the same as Major/Minor Leaguers.
The podcast hosts took issue with some of the choices, as a couple of them were not from sitcoms. So, the VORG will attempt to accomplish the task, and since this year’s Emmy nominees have just been announced, we’ll try and find names of Emmy-nominated roles.

1B – Michael Harris (Newhart)
2B – Lou Grant (The Mary Tyler Moore Show)
SS – Michael Scott (The Office)
