Synopsis

Alfonso Ramon Lopez spent 36 years in the baseball league as a catcher and manager. He had a 261 lifetime batting average, compiled 1547 hits and caught a then-record 1918 games in a 19-year playing career. The teams he managed, the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago White Sox, won two pennants and finished runner-up 10 times in 17 seasons. He also opened up baseball to individuals of Spanish, Cuban and Italian ancestry. This biography is based on the recollections of Al himself, those of former players, family and fans, and also on newspaper and periodical accounts, and archival resources.
