Kendall joins elite company with 2,000 games behind the plate
Jason Kendall overcame a grotesque ankle dislocation in 1999 to become just the fifth catcher in history to work 2,000 games behind the plate. The list is as follows: Ivan Rodriguez, 2,351 (and counting); Carlton Fisk, 2,226; Bob Boone, 2,225; Gary Carter, 2,056; and Jason with 2,000 and counting.
Jason and his son Kuyper had their picture taken last night with the five cakes that were presented to Jason – one featuring each of the catchers with 2,000 games caught. Kudos to Jason for persevering to reach this milestone!
