Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Manwaring is not much of a threat at the plate. Hard throwers can overpower him. He's willing to put the ball in play and hope that Coors Field can help him. He was feeble on the road last year, batting .179 compared to .315 in Denver. He can handle the bat, making him a viable candidate to bunt or hit-and-run. He's slow and wise enough to not force the issue on the basepaths. Defense is his strength. He still has a strong arm but is prone to throwing slumps. He's as good as they come blocking the plate. He excels at handling a staff, and pitchers trust his knowledge and receiving skills." - 1998 Scouting Report (STATS, Inc., 1998 STATS, Inc.)

In 1958, Bob Schmidt turned ten double plays catching for the San Francisco Giants , the first backstop in team history to lead the National League (NL). Kirt Manwaring, thirty-four years later, was the next Giant to lead the NL in double plays by a catcher, taking part in twelve in 1992, and when he led again in 1994, he became the first (and to date the only) catcher in San Francisco history to lead more than once.

In 1993, Kirt Manwaring caught 130 games for the Giants and committed only two errors all year long, a fielding feat not seen in San Francisco since Tom Haller caught 136 games in 1967, and committed only three errors. Since Manwaring, only one other Giant has caught at least 130 games, yet committed fewer than five errors. Do you know who it was? [ Answer ]

Kirt Manwaring was inducted into the Coastal Carolina University Hall of Fame in 2007. His biography ( Link ) there includes the highlights which appear below. A year later, the Giants marked the 50th anniversary of their move west and inducted 43 Giants into the Wall of Fame - Manwaring was recognized (plaque below) as one of their greatest players.
