"Though 'never very strong in stick work,' his Deadball Era contemporaries believed that Billy Sullivan's 'brilliant performances behind the bat ... more than offset his weak hitting.' Although his paltry .213 lifetime batting average is the second worst all-time (next to Bill Bergen ) among players with at least 3,000 at bats, Sullivan developed a reputation as a brainy backstop with an uncanny ability to handle pitchers. Described by Ty Cobb as the best catcher 'ever to wear shoe leather,' Sullivan was 'the best man throwing to bases in the American League,' and 'no man in the business [knew] more about getting the best work from a pitcher and holding an infield together.' Sullivan also revolutionized the way his position was played; he is credited as the first catcher to position himself directly behind the batter and as the inventor of an inflatable chest protector." - Baseball Historian Trey Strecker (SABR Baseball Biography Project, Billy Sullivan, Source )
