Ted Simmons

Ted Simmons

Ted Simmons was maybe the most unlikely looking superstar of his era, considering his squat body type, wide ass (even for a catcher), long unkempt hair, and almost caveman-like noggin. But Simmons was a hitter, plain and simple. No, he wasn't a great (or maybe even very good) receiver, but he could hit the baseball. Only Pudge Rodriguez collected more hits as a catcher.

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.
