When Hargrave hit .353 in 1926, he became the first full-time catcher to lead his league in batting; only Ernie Lombardi ever matched the feat. It was the first time that decade that Rogers Hornsby, who slumped to .317 that year, didn't win the crown. Hargrave had only 326 at-bats, but at the time the percentage title qualification was 100 games; Hargrave caught 93 games, but pinch-hitting appearances brought his total to 105 games. The primitive state of catchers' protective gear made it fairly common for first-string catchers to play fewer than 100 games. Bubbles is the brother of catcher Pinky Hargrave, and one of 14 pair of catcher brothers [See Family of Catchers].
