The Duke of Tralee

by the Village Elliott

For Roger Bresnahan

Jints’ catcher, start of last century
First in “Bigs” to guard his shin and knee
McGraw’s Irish gamer
Intense Hall-of-Famer
Roger Bresnahan, “Duke of Tralee”

On Saturday, June 20, Buster Posey became the first Giants catcher to steal a base and hit a grand slam in the same game in 107 years since “The Duke of Tralee.”
