Muddy Ruel - 1933 Goudey

Herold Dominic “Muddy” Ruel (1896-1963) is remembered for catching Walter Johnson’s first World Series victory in 1924 and scoring the winning run in Game 7 of the 1924 World Series for the Senators clinching the victory for Washington’s first world championship. Ruel is also remembered for catching Carl Mays’s game when he hit Ray Chapman in the head as he crowded the plate in 1920, causing his eventual death the following day. Ruel revealed that he felt Chapman lost sight of the ball, and felt Mays was not to blame. Muddy got his name due to a filthy game he invented as a child involving the use of mud balls. Ruel played 19 seasons, mostly for Washington (1923-1930), the New York Yankees (1917-1920) and Boston (1921-1922, 1931) with shorter stints with the American League teams of St. Louis, Detroit and Chicago. Muddy Ruel was a top defensive catcher of his time leading the league in fielding percentage for three straight years (1926-1928) and led the league in putouts and assists three times. From 1923-1927, Muddy had no less than 110 hits in each seasons and no less than 52 RBI during that stretch. Muddy Ruel retired with a .238 career batting average with 1,242 hits, 494 runs and 534 RBI. After his playing days ended, he spend ten plus seasons as a coach for the White Sox, then became the assistant to the Commissioner of Baseball Happy Chandler in 1946. He would later move on to various coaching positions around the league.
