Boss Schmidt has the ignoble record of committing five errors and allowing 16 stolen bases during a World Series (1909), both records which still stand today.
A brawler who boxed an exhibition with heavyweight champ Jack Johnson, Schmidt became the leader of three Tiger pennant winners (1907-09) by whipping Ty Cobb in several fights. He made the last out in consecutive World Series in 1907-08, the only player ever to do so. Walter Schmidt, also a major league catcher, was his younger brother. [See FAMILY OF CATCHERS].
