Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Schreck could do more with his glove than any catcher that ever stood behind the plate. He caught 99.99% of balls thrown to him with one hand, his glove hand. He used his glove hand like a shortstop." - Philadelphia Athletics Manager Connie Mack in Deadball Stars of the American League (Dan O'Brien, Potomac Books, 02/15/2006, Page 74)

Did you know the final game Ossee Schreckengost appeared in was October 2, 1908, the perfect game thrown by opposing pitcher Addie Joss ? Did you know four years earlier, on May 5, 1904, Ossee was catching when opposing pitcher Cy Young threw his perfect game making Schreckengost the only catcher in history to on the losing side of two perfect games ?

Ossee Schreckengost caught a career high 114 games in 1905, the Philadelphia Athletics captured the American League pennant (but lost 1-4 to the New York Giants in the 1905 World Series) and Schreck set a new single season record for putouts by a catcher with 790 - a record that stood until future Hall of Famer Roy Campanella had 807 putouts in 1953.
