Catcher is a very important position. Were it not for the catcher, every pitch would go all the way to the backstop! The Royals are fortunate to have an All-Star catcher, but for several years the position was in flux.

There have been 25 different catchers who have gotten the start on Opening Day. Some were All-Stars, Gold Glovers, and long-time veterans. Others were hardly in the big leagues.

Of the 25 Royals Opening Day catchers, how many can you name?
