About the Player
Robert Arthur "Bob" O'Farrell (October 19, 1896 – February 20, 1988) was a former major league baseball catcher and manager who played for 21 seasons on four National League teams, including the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals and New York Giants. O'Farrell also played for the Cincinnati Reds, albeit briefly. He was considered as one of the greatest defensive catchers of his generation.

O'Farrell was born in Waukegan, Illinois where he grew up a Chicago White Sox fan. He signed with the Cubs in 1915 after playing an exhibition game for his local semi-professional team. His first manager was Roger Bresnahan, who helped O'Farrell with his catching skills. After a season in the bench, O'Farrell was sent to Three-I League where spent two years before advancing to the majors as a backup catcher.

By 1922 he became the starter, where he hit .322 that season. He fractured his skull during a 1924 game while chasing a foul ball on an old mask. He missed most of the season, and lost his job to future Baseball Hall of Famer Gabby Hartnett. He was traded in the start of the 1925 season for Mike Gonzalez and Howard Freigau.
