MLB Trivia: Catching Errors

The NL record for most consecutive games played at catcher without an error was set by Mike Matheny, who caught 252 errorless games from 2002 to 2004. But the MLB record for most consecutive games at catcher without an error is 253. This player's streak, which ended just this past May, started while he was on an NL team and ended while on an AL team. Who is he?

Ivan Rodriguez?

Close, Lisa. The answer is a different ex-Marlin... and he was mostly a backup during this streak...

maybe lo duca? but i doubt it.

This guy actually backed up I-Rod on those world champion 2003 Marlins. The answer? Mike Redmond.

I guess that's 2 good things about Redmond. The only other good thing about Redmond is he OWNS Tom Glavine.

in 48 career AB vs, Glavine, Redmond hit .438, slugged .604 and had 2 HR and 7 RBI. To put that in perspective, his career average is .287, career slug is .358 and he has a whopping 13 career HR.

that's OWNership!
