I got sent this last night…wonder why.
During his era he was one of the best catchers, Johnny Bench being the best and the other two being Thurman Munson and Carlton Fisk, and all are in the Hall of Fame except Munson. An argument can be made that during the years Thurman Munson and Fisk played, Munson was a better all around catcher both offensively and defensively. Munson’s lifetime statistics also compare very favorably to Hall of Fame Catcher Roy Campanella whose career was also ended prematurely. Thurman Munson had a Lifetime Batting Average of .292 and Roy Campanella had a Lifetime Batting Average of .276. In fact Thurman Munson has a higher lifetime batting average then Hall of Fame Catchers Yogi Berra, Roy Campanella, Johnny Bench, and Carlton Fisk!
In fact Thurman Munson has a lower lifetime OPS+ then Hall of Fame Catchers Yogi Berra, Roy Campanella, Johnny Bench, and Carlton Fisk!
