Doesn't live play allow you to do that?
A) why would that be unfortunate? I would love it if the LIVE engine allowed you to use 2-way players as 2-way players.
B) No, it doesn't. The only way you can have a position player pitch is if you burn through all the pitchers on your roster. That would obviously be easier to do on LIVE, when you could bring guys in for one PA or to pitch to one batter and then sub for them. But even so you then have to exit the game and it will pick a pitcher for you. Maybe because Ruth actually pitched he'd be the first guy in, I don't know. But it's also worth keeping in mind that his pitching stats aren't loaded into the database, so it's not like he'll know how to pitch in the game. His only advantage is that he has defensive ratings at the position. He won't have pitching stats.
