Major League Baseball Player. The catcher played 13 years in the big leagues with the New York Yankees (1939 to 1942), the Cleveland Indians (1943 to 1944), the Philadelphia Athletics (1945 to 1949) and the Boston Red Sox (1950 to 1951). He was named to the American League All-Star team five times (1942, 1943, 1946, 1947 and 1948). He didn't played in the first two games, but he went 1 for 2 with a run scored in the AL's 12-0 romp in 1946 at Fenway Park. In 1947, he started and batted eighth and went 0 for 4 in the AL's 2-1 victory at Wrigley Field. In 1948, he started, hit eighth and went 0 for 1 in another victory, 5-2. The Yankees traded him with outfielder Roy Cullenbine on December 17, 1942 to the Cleveland Indians for outfielder Stormy Weatherly and infielder Oscar Grimes. The Indians shipped him to the A's on May 29, 1945 for catcher Frankie Hayes. In 1946, he established a major-league record with 605 errorless chances in 117 games. Philadelphia dealt him to Boston on October 8, 1949 for infielder Billy Hitchcock. The right-handed hitter batted .261 lifetime with 147 doubles, 18 homers and 367 runs batted in.  (bio by: Ron Coons)
