Behind the Mask

Mickey Cochrane is considered, by many, to be the greatest catcher in major league baseball history. He led the Philadelphia Athletics to three pennants and two World Championships (1929-1931). As the player-manager of the Detroit Tigers, Cochrane led the team to two pennants (1934, 1935) and a World Championship (1935). A very tough competitor, he hit a .320 during his Hall of Fame career.

This was a catcher's mask he used early in his career.
