[edit] Biographical Information

Catcher George Mitterwald spent all of his career with the Minnesota Twins and Chicago Cubs, playing 11 seasons. On April 17, 1974, in only his fifth game as a member of the Cubs, he had the best day of his career in leading the Cubbies to an 18-9 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates; he went 4 for 4 with a walk, a double and three homers, and driving in 8 runs. He would be the last Cubs catcher to have a three-homer game until Dioner Navarro on May 29, 2013.

Mitterwald was the Oakland A's bullpen coach from 1979-82 and also coached one season, 1988, for the New York Yankees. He had three different stints as a minor league manager, with the Modesto A's (1983-85), the Orlando Twins (1986-87), and the independent Duluth-Superior Dukes (1996-98).
