6:43 am
and that is another catcher. and you being catcher, you understand in a, you know, johnny bench understands. all these guys understand that in a good good year, you might catch 140 games, which is 22 games less thaanybody else plays. and you add that up over if course of the -- over the course of the career and you're talki about, 200, 250 games that you have missed,ust because of the schedule. >> tim: right. >> now if you add in the games you've missed because of injury, whether it's -- or the games you played that you were somewhat ineffective because of -- you know, you lost three toenails and your foot is swollen up or you got hit in the neck the night before in your shoulder and you can't hardly lift your arm that day. and just the fatigue that -- that a catcher accrues throughout not particularly one game but, you know, if you catch 10, 12, 15, 20 games in a row -- >> tim: th foul tips.
6:44 am
thee catching -- the centering f a fastball, of catching 94-mile-an-hour fastball and the deadening of in a bone right there and then trying to hit with it, whether it's a top hand or bottom hand, right- or left-handed hiter, people just don't understand that -- comparing catchers' numbers, you can't compare a first baseman outfielder to any -- to any catcher. >> i'd like to take some of these guys, y you know, that -- y likee mike schmid. playing third base on the turf. >> tim: best third base men ever. >> you know, best overall third baseman. >> tim: absolute. >> there's, you know -- i'd have to argue as far as whether he can catch the ball or not because i played against brooks robinson and i'll tell you what, that -- >> tim: the human vacuum cleaner. >> i want to whack him a few times. but those guys -- put those guys behind thehe plate and see howow well they do, you know, that 500 home run thing, that doesn't happen.
6:45 am
>> tim: huh-uh. >> it just doesn't happen. and like you say, the things that you try to do to make it easier on yourself, you know, i helped develop a glove that wasn't rowd that had the break in the side, so i tried to become a one-handed catcher and then you try to catch the ball -- if you catch the ball there, all the time, you know, that's swollen, black and blue. you can't -- you try to catch e ball off -- basically off your hand, so you know, you develop a lot of little things to try to help out, but oh, man. >> tim: talk about how much third, fourth, and five-day-forecast at-bats or the second game of a doubleheader that are give up, with the lazy fly ball the other way because you don't have the strength in your arms to come throu. believe me, we're not complaining -- [laughter] >> tim: i promise you we're not. and we said we were going to show the home run, the famous home run. we're going to delay that until the next segment and be back with carlton fisk and have a

6:50 am
i can't think of any otherime that i've ever been in the spot like that or -- and have something like that happen. >> tim: your parts, cecil and leona, they were situated to where -- i think i read that right, where they could almost see whether the ball was fair or foul and had it not hit the pole. >> right. >> tim: weren't they like down -- looking down the third baseline? >> yeah. just -- they were just to the dugout side of first place. >> tim: she had a great shot of -- they had a great shot of their son doing something that is perhaps the most famous walk-off, the most -- among the most famous home runs, among the st important hits in the history of the game, i mean, just think about that! >> i it's incredible when you think about it. but i don't -- you know, grong up in a small town, you know, it was -- what you did athletically
