Post RIP Gus Triandos

Fellow Greek-American and Oriole catcher with a nickname of Gus Tremendous died yesterday at age 82. Big favorite of Oriole fans in the late 50's and early 60's. IIRC he was the first catcher to use the oversized catchers mitt which Paul Richards came up with to help the catchers with Hoyt Wilhelm's knuckleball. If he wasn't the first then it would have been Clint Courtney who was the backup catcher.
