Johnny Pramesa - 1951 Bowman

John Steven “Johnny” Pramesa (1925-1996) caught only four seasons in the Major Leagues with the Cincinnati Reds (1949-1951) and Chicago Cubs (1952), but enjoyed a successful minor league career spending nine seasons in the New York Giants and Cubs farm system. The Wheeling, West Virginia-native signed with the Giants in 1943, but was then drafted by the Reds in the 1948 Rule 5 Draft. Pramesa’s Major League debut came in 1949, but he served primarily as a backup to Walker Cooer and Dixie Howell. His best year came in 1950 when he appeared in 74 games batting .307 with 70 hits including ten doubles and drove in 30 RBI. The big, burly catcher was sent to the Chicago Cubs for Smokey Burgess in 1951 where he would finish his big league career. Johnny returned to the minors to wrap up his playing career and batted .311 for his minor league career. In 185 Major League games, Johnny Pramesa batted .268 with 141 hits and 59 RBI over four years.
