Rick Ferrell

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Richard Benjamin Ferrell (October 12, 1905 - July 27, 1995) was among the best catchers in the Major Leagues for two decades from 1929-1947, frequently being the receiver of the unconventional and unpredictable knuckleball. During his time with the Washington in 1944, Ferrell handled the entire knuckleball throwing Senators staff, thus becoming the only catcher in history to do so. Rick possessed and exceptional arm and often led the league in fielding percentage, putouts, assists and caught stealing, but due to his knuckleballing battery-mates, also led in errors and passed balls. Ferrell was a threat at the plate as well, hitting over .300 four times in his 18-year career. Rick Ferrell retired with a .984 fielding percentage, 1,692 hits, 734 RBI and a career .281 batting average. He was selected to eight All-Star games and was held in such high regard by Connie Mack, played the entire 1933 All-Star game behind the plate as fellow Hall of Famers Bill Dickey and Mickey Cochrane rode the bench. The Veterans Committee elected Richard Benjamin Ferrell to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1984.
