The father of modern catching, Zimmer was the first catcher to play directly behind the batter on every play. Previously, catchers would move farther behind the plate with runners on base, to stay more upright in order to make throws. Zimmer was regarded as one of the finest defensive backstops of his day, but also wielded a dangerous bat, hitting .340 in 1895.
