"John M. Ward presenting cup to Bresnahan May 25, 1909. During his 17-year career, versatile Roger Bresnahan played all nine positions. As a catcher, ""The Duke of Tralee"" possessed an innovative technique, knowledge of game strategy, and solid leadership abilities that led John McGraw and Branch Rickey to label him the best catcher they had ever seen. Following a beaning, he was one of the first to experiment with head protection. Despite taunts from players, he also began using shin guards in 1907, paving the way for their rapid adoption throughout Baseball. You will receive a high quality print on heavy-duty brilliant photo paper."
