Werner had to catch him, but I think Seaver is the main force behind that battery!

Tom Hall had a terrific 1972 season as a part-time starter and set up man out of the bullpen. But he was a one year wonder and faded back into oblivion. His nickname was "The Blade".

Yea I kinda think "Tom Terrific" might have been the better of the two also!! :p:

I just thought it was interesting that Werner was the catcher for Seavers no hitter and also for Seavers two hitter. Maybe it was just a coincidence or maybe Seaver was just more comfy with Werner than Bench. I kinda doubt but who knows!!

I really don't think it mattered who caught Seaver when he was in his prime. Uecker could have caught him and it wouldn't have made a difference :D
IMO Seaver was one of the best pitchers of all time. He doesn't get mentioned that much but for over a decade he was the dominate pitcher in all of MLB.

I was going to say that Seaver and any one of us would have made a dynamite battery, but I know that there would be NO way I could handle his stuff! :D
