Buck Ewing was perhaps the finest all-around player of the 19th century. Although best-remembered as a catcher, he also played the infield and the outfield with consummate skill. He hit over .300 in 11 of his 18 major league campaigns, compiling a .311 career average; and his remarkable arm enabled him to throw out runners without rising from his squat position behind the plate. A great field leader, he went on to enjoy further success as a manager.
