Seven switch-hitting catchers have hit at least 100 homers: Jorge Posada, Ted Simmons, Jason Varitek, Mickey Tettleton, Todd Hundley, Victor Martinez, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. In 2016, Martinez hit pinch-hit home runs in each of the first two games of the season, the first time that had ever been done in major league history. The Tigers opened the season on the road against the Marlins, so the designated hitter was not used in either of the two games.
