Cubs Fact:

Cubs pitcher Ferguson Jenkins recorded 3.000 strikeouts with less than 1,000 walks in his career.

I've got one for you:

Our recent walk down memory lane got me thinking of some of the Cub teams I grew up watching as a kid. One of those memories was of quite possibly the worst 3 headed monster of a catching rotation ever assembled in 1979.

Can you name any of those catchers without the help of Google?
Bonus if you can name 2 of them.
You are AMAZING if you can get all 3.

I'm betting Barry Foote and George Mitterwald are involved in that mess.

LOL! You are good, Phil! Barry Foote was the main appendage to that mess of a conglomeration. No George Mitterwald, though.

BAM! Tim Blackwell is correct! NICE, CHRIS! Cliff Johnson is not the last guy, but that was a good guess. Only one guy left!

BAM! You nailed it! You guys are good. Thoroughly impressed. On a side note, Ted Sizemore also filled in at catcher for the Cubbies that year if my memory serves me correct! I know he was at least capable of playing the position.

Well done!
