Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Cas is a helluva knuckleball hitter. It's too bad he can't hit the other pitches as well - or that there aren't more knuckleball pitchers in the league. How do you hit the knuckleball? Hell, I don't know - I never did learn how to hit the darned things." - Hall of Famer Ted Williams in The Sheboygan Press (08/07/1969, Casanova's Pinch HR Nips Sox, Page 35)

The Washington Senators (1961-1971) played two games longer than 20-innings, the first on June 12, 1967 (22 innings), the second on June 4, 1971 (21 innings). The catcher behind the plate during both marathon games was none other than Paul Casanova!

Did you know that when Phil Niekro threw a no-hitter on August 5, 1973 , against the San Diego Padres , the first for the Braves after moving to Atlanta , the catcher during that historical gem was (once again) Paul Casanova [See Photo Below]?
