MLB Trivia: Catching On Elsewhere

After having played more than 900 MLB games at catcher, Joe Mauer announced during this offseason that he would be permanently moving from catcher to first base. The only player in MLB history who went on to play at least 300 games at any other field position(s) after having caught 900 MLB games is Joe Torre.  In fact, as of right now, only one other player joins Torre in having played at least 300 games at another position after having played 700 games at catcher. Can you name him? (Hint: This player's career ended last decade -- the 2000s.)

Biggio is a very good guess. But that's not the answer ...
