"I know every news story can't be rosy. That's not reality. And there's little we can do to stem the growing intrusion of the press. So until newspapers stop printing, ESPN stops broadcasting and the Internet disappears, maybe some of us just need to develop thicker skins. Or do what many athletes do: don't pick up the newspaper, turn on the TV or listen to talk radio. After all, at the end of the day we still get to go out and play a game." - Brad Ausmus in ESPN The Magazine (Brad Ausmus, 06/18/2007, You guys just can't get enough , Source )

Did you know that Brad Ausmus was inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 2004? Ausmus ranks first among all Jewish Baseball Players in career games played (1,971) and once said (Washington Jewish Week, Brad Greenberg, 07/01/2009, 'There's a new Jew in Dodger blue'), "I have had quite a few young Jewish boys who will tell me that I am their favorite player, or they love watching me play or they feel like baseball is a good fit for them because it worked for me, or it worked for Shawn Green or other Jewish players at the Major League level. It has been a sense of pride. If you can have a positive impact on a kid, I'm all for it."

Did you know that when Brad Ausmus won his first Gold Glove Award in 2001 , he was the first Houston Astros catcher to receive the presitigous baseball award? The three time recipient ( 2001 , 2002 , 2006 ) remains, through today, the only Astros catcher to win a Golden Glove . At the time of his retirement (2010), only four catchers had won more Gold Gloves IN the National League; Johnny Bench (10), Del Crandall (4), Charles Johnson (4), and Mike Matheny (4).

The Sporting News (09/27/2010, Link ) once ranked the twenty smartest athletics in all sports and Brad Ausmus finished eighth overall! The complete list, from all sports, includes: #1 Craig Breslow Ross Ohlendorf (SP, Pittsburgh Pirates), #4 George Parros (F, Anaheim Ducks), #5 Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB, Buffalo Bills), #6 Matt Birk (C, Baltimore Ravens), #7 Shane Battier (F, Houston Rockets), #8 Chris Young (SP, San Diego Padres), #9 Brad Ausmus (C, Los Angeles Dodgers), #10 Grant Hill (G, Phoenix Suns), #11 Alex Smith (QB, San Francisco 49ers), #12 Jody Gerut (OF, San Diego Padres), #13 Craig Counsell (IF, Milwaukee Brewers), #14 Peyton Manning (QB, Indianapolis Colts), #15 Pau Gasol (F, Los Angeles Lakers), #16 Douglas Murray (D, San Jose Sharks), #17 Sean Bedford (C, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets), #18 Sam Acho (DE, Texas Longhorns), #19 Matt Bonner (F, San Antonio Spurs), #20 Greg McElroy (QB, Alabama Crimson Tide) and honorable mention Brian Bannister (P, Kansas City Royals).

When Brad Ausmus retired in 2010, he ranked seventh in Major League history for most games caught (1. Ivan Rodriguez , 2,427; 2. Carlton Fisk , 2,226; 3. Bob Boone , 2,225; 4. Gary Carter , 2,056; Jason Kendall , 2,025; 6. Tony Pena , 1,950; 7. Brad Ausmus, 1,938) and he had several seasons where he led his league in defensive catching stats including: most games caught (150 in 2000, 134 in 2005, 138 in 2006), most putouts (683 in 1994, 898 in 2000, 884 in 2005 & 929 in 2006), most assists (63 in 1995 & 68 in 2000), double plays (14 in 1995), caught stealing (39 in 1995) and fielding percentage (.998 in 1999, .997 in 2001, .999 in 2005 & .998 in 2006).
