Game 74 | January 27, 1959 | Sherm Lollar, Gene Mauch
Lollar was an All-Star and Gold Glove winner as the Chicago White Sox catcher in 1958. He was soon to report to spring training for what would be his best season and a World Series Championship for his team. Lollar was such a fixture at catcher that his backup, Earl Battey, was traded to Washington and would be a future Minnesota Twins star: Mauch, a future Twins manager, had guided the Minneapolis Millers to the Junior World Series title as manager in 1958.
