Gus Mancuso

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

August Rodney “Gus” Mancuso (December 5, 1905 - October 26, 1984) was an excellent defensive catcher who New York Giants skipper Bill Terry credits for helping the 1933 Giants leap from sixth place in 1932 to first place the next season. Mancuso played 17 seasons with the Cardinals (1928, 1932-1932, 1941-1942), the Giants (1933-1938, 1942-1944) and one-year stints with the Cubs (1939), Dodgers (1940) and Phillies (1945). Mancuso was selected to two All-Star games and was twice a World Series champion – with the Cardinals in 1931 and the Giants in 1933. Mancuso masterfully handled the highly talented pitching staff of Hall of Famer Carl Hubbell, Freddie Fitzsimmons, Roy Parmalee and Hal Schumacher. Gus led National League catcher three times in putouts and twice in caught stealing. At one time or another, Mancuso caught five Hall of Fame pitchers – Hubbell, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Dizzy Dean, Burleigh Grimes and Jesse Haines. Gus Mancuso retired posting a .265 career bating average with 1,194 hits, 386 runs and 543 RBI. Gus Mancuso worked as a broadcaster and scout with the St. Louis Cardinals and Houston Colt .45s after retirement as an everyday player.
