This Week In Baseball History

Jul 15, 2021

Proving he was perhaps the best player ever to don the tools of ignorance, Johnny Bench surpassed Yogi Berra 41 years ago this week to hit the most homers ever by a catcher. He's since been surpassed, but there's no denying that The Little General was a peerless leader on the field and a fearsome slugger at the plate. And, this week, Mike and Bill look back at what made him tick. Plus, happy birthday to Lee Meadows and Larry Jansen!
