T5 (Stan Lopata 1948 – 1958 and Andy Seminick 1943 – 1951, 1955 – 1957)

Lopata and Seminick are put together because their careers partially overlapped and their statistics are very similar.  Both played on the 1950 “Whiz Kids” NL Championship team.

Lopata was a two-time All-Star was ranks 4th among Phillies catchers with 116 home runs, hitting a career high 32 in 1956.

Seminick was an All-Star in 1949 belting 24 home runs and knocking in 68. He had identical numbers in 1950 and ranks 3rd in home runs among Phillies catchers.
