100 Greatest Catchers of All-Time

Catcher is one of the most difficult positions in all of sports. The list of responsibilities for a catcher is extensive. If a player demonstrates quality defensive ability most teams are willing to accept his shortcomings at the plate. The man who can handle both the defensive and offensive aspects equally well is incredibly rare. Players like Johnny Bench, Yogi Berra, and Ivan Rodriguez are exceptionally valuable. Players like Jim Sundberg, Yadier Molina, and Mike Piazza who excelled at one or the other is the majority. When a Gary Carter or Carlton Fisk comes along you appreciate what you get to witness.

Below is my list of the 100 greatest catchers of all-time. Many people argue that a catcher’s defensive ability and his ability to handle a pitching staff and call a game is more important than his ability to hit. I believe they are equally important. These rankings reflect that. If you don’t agree, leave a comment and let me know why.

  • Joe Torre is the fourth best catcher of all time??? He shouldn’t be on the list at all. He was a part time catcher and is only in the hall of fame because of his managing success. Maybe Craig Biggio should be number 1. Or Jimmy Foxx. They, along with Torre, were able to compile great career offensive stats because they moved to less physically demanding positions early in their careers. This list is an insult to the great catchers in baseball history and to the intelligence of baseball fans.

  • And Gene Tenace at number 6 is an even bigger joke. He caught even fewer games than Torre. You fail to realize that squatting for 9 innings per game, 140 -150 games year after year wears them down physically and affects their offensive stats. Piazza, Bench, the Pudges, Kid, all the legendary catchers would have put up much greater stats at other positions.
