Jason Varitek’s Records

Personally, I have always been a fan of Jason Varitek since I found out that he had moved in down the street from my childhood home not to mention the full size candy bars and autographs on Halloween and/or Him, Johnny Damon, Mike Timlin and others Trick or Treating in my neighborhood during the peak of Red Sox madness (September 2004 – The Start of the 2005 Season).

Reading the accomplishments and stats above it is hard to deny the greatness of Varitek but what is often overlooked was his ability to call/catch a great game. Many of the Boston Red Sox pitchers praised Varitek and his ability to call the right pitches and talk to them in key high-stress situations. This is displayed by him catching 4 no hitters, this is by far the most by any catcher in the history of major league baseball.

Apparently success has followed Varitek wherever he has gone, winning championships at every major baseball level growing up:
