John J. McGraw says: “Buck Ewing for general all around excellence as a backstop never had an equal. He was smart and aggressive. He came as near to being a catcher without a single weakness as the game has ever known. In fact, Buck Ewing was a Ty Cobb behind the bat. He had a mental capacity equal to his playing ability. Ewing could handle a team perfectly. He was compelled to do that with the old-time Giants, because Jim Mutrie, the nominal manager, was more of a business man than a team director.”
