A Catcher That Can Hit, Be Hit, and Run

Jason Kendall was a catcher with a super power: Baseballs appeared drawn to him like a magnet. Kendall was hit by 254 pitches over a 15 year career, ranking him 5th on the all-time career leaderboard. If these trips to first base had been singles instead, his career batting average would have been 23 points higher and would rank ahead of Derek Jeter and Don Mattingly.
