It’s time to answer questions this week on the podcast, and talk a lot about potato chips.
Steve Yeager was a Dodgers catcher for 14 seasons, was a co-World Series MVP in 1981, started 20 World Series games, posed in Playgirl, helped invent a catcher’s throat guard, was called by Tommy Lasorda as the best defensive catcher he ever managed, and was third base coach Duke Tempe in the movie ‘Major League.’
Yeager, who ranks third all-time in games caught in Dodgers history, also managed in the Dodgers minors and coached catchers in the organization for a number of years.
He also stole home once, a game in which Yeager also homered.
