As always, try to answer without a web search.

It's bugging me, because I have heard it before, and it's really suprising to me. Yogi Berra is my bes guess, but that has to be too late...

fwiw, says it was 3 seasons as a Cub

I'm not very good at these, as my knowledge of baseball history, let alone Cubs history, isn't that great.

But I seem to remember reading something once about great hitters in the Deadball Era. Was it Roger Bresnahan?

ernie lombardi?

Shin guards, end of his career... that's got to place him in the 1910s or early 1920s at the very latest, I would guess. But I couldn't tell ya who was catching then.

Brenahan it is...
