Gus Triandos

Big, powerful, strong-armed, and slow-footed, Triandos came to the Orioles as part of a 17-player trade in 1954 and was their regular catcher for seven seasons. He hit over 20 home runs three times, tying the AL record for catchers with 30 in 1958.

With the Phillies on June 21, 1964 Triandos caught Jim Bunning’s perfect game, the first in the NL in 84 years. Oddly, he owns the ML record with 1,206 consecutive games without being caught stealing; he stole only one base.
