Brian Schneider retires
Brian Schneider, the last regular catcher of the Montreal Expos, retired from baseball Tuesday. With Montreal, his batting stat line was .252/.321/.399, 27 home runs and 141 runs batted in in 388 games. He also ranks 6th for career innings caught (2845.2) with the club and had a 45% success rate against base stealers, which is better than Gary Carter (40%). In 2003 and 2004, he even had the best caught-stealing percentage among National League catchers. Have fun with all your future projects, Brian.
