Major League Baseball Player. He was a catcher for four teams in fifteen years in the major leagues. He broke in with the Detroit Tigers in 1926, playing with Ty Cobb during that Hall of Famer's final season. He spent the bulk of his big league years with the Tigers (1926, 1929-1938). He also played with the Brooklyn Dodgers (1938-39, 1944-45), New York Giants (1939), and St. Louis Browns (1942). His glove is on exhibit in the Hall of Fame for setting an American League record for most consecutive chances (439) without an error (later broken by Yogi Berra). During his long career he batted a modest .265 with five home runs and 238 runs batted in. He was a member of Detroit's team when they were in the World Series in 1934 and 1935. (bio by: Mel Bashore)
