Hall of Fame catcher of the Philadelphia Athletics who retired with a batting average of .320, leading the team to three straight pennants.
By all accounts he was a much better football and basketball player in high school, and rarely played catcher in baseball, but he chose baseball as the most reliable sport to make a living.
He caught for pitchers Lefty Grove and Schoolboy Rowe when both were on their 16-game winning streaks, for which he became the first catcher elected to the Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America.
He was born in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, the fifth of seven children of Scottish immigrants, John and Sadie Cochrane.
He was teammates with some of the greatest hitters in baseball, such as Hank Greenberg and Jimmy Foxx.
