John J. McGraw says: “To my way of thinking, Bresnahan was about the best catcher of all times. The only other catcher that I would rank alongside him is Buck Ewing. I have had fans, baseball writers and even players look surprised when I made this statement about Bresnahan. But I would ask you something: Did you ever know of another catcher who was in Baseball smart enough hitter and base runner to lead the batting order? Did you ever know of another catcher who in addition to his backstop work could hit over .300 and steal forty-five bases in a season?”
