Charles Evard Street (1882-1951) was a catcher, manager and broadcaster over a long and storied career. He made news for two stunts: catching a ball dropped from the Wash. Monument (on his 13th try) and putting himself in for one AB as mgr of the Cards in ’31, giving him the “record” of longest gap between ML appearances.

  • Led St Louis to 2 pennants and one Series win in 1931
  • Mentored Walter Johnson and, in the booth, a young Harry Caray
