 Biographical Information
Catcher Ed Herrmann was the grandson of pitcher Marty Herrmann. He spent most of his career with the Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros, finishing up as a little-used back-up to future Hall of Famer Gary Carter with the Montreal Expos in 1978.
He led the 1972 AL in intentional walks with 19. Most of these walks were to get to the extremely light-hitting Luis Alvarado and Rich Morales. He was particularly adept at catching the knuckleball thrown by Wilbur Wood. In fact, in 1972, he was the starting catcher in all 49 of Wood's starts. This was the highest number of starts for a battery in a season since pitcher Hardie Henderson and catcher Sam Trott were together for 52 starts for the Baltimore Orioles of the American Association in 1884.
