Baseball Almanac Top Quote

" Naragon, Harold Richard : Only the presence of Jim Hegan kept Hal Naragon from establishing himself as one of baseball's best catchers in the 1950s. When he came up as a rookie in 1954, in fact, he was called 'a carbon copy of Hegan ,' though Naragaon was never able to win a starting job. An excellent receiver and handler of pitchers, Naragon played behind Hegan in Cleveland then backed up Earl Battey at Washington and Minnesota ." - Historian Russell Schneider in The Cleveland Indians Encyclopedia (Sports Publishing LLC, 09/01/2004, Page 228)
