Orlando Hudson Talks About Transition To 3rd Base For White Sox

The Chicago White Sox recently placed struggling third baseman Brent Morel on the 15-day disabled list, opening the door for the team to sign veteran Orlando Hudson. The O-Dog, as he's known, has spent the majority of his career playing second base, but the Sox plan on using Hudson as a substitute for Morel at third.

Before the Sox started a three-game series against Hudson's former team, the Minnesota Twins, he talked about his transition to third base.

"A ground ball is a ground ball, but it definitely comes a little harder down at third base," Hudson said. "I’m not going to sit here and say I’m going to make every play. After the game you might be like, ‘What are you doing booting that ball that ends up losing the game?’ But I’m human. It happens. It’s baseball."
