Big fan of Boston baseball? Then check out this list of the best Boston Red Sox catchers of all time. The Boston Red Sox have had some amazing catchers throughout their years in the MLB, but who is the all time greatest? Since the franchise was established way back in 1901, the Red Sox have seen some serious talent take spot behind the plate. Not only are these Sox catchers renown for their ability to call the right pitches and stop passing balls, most of them were a real threat in the batter's box as well. Vote for the player you believe deserves to be called number one. Keep in mind you're voting on the best player and not the best team, so even if a player never won a World Series with the Boston Red Sox, they can still be considered their best catcher.

The list of top Red Sox catchers includes great like Carlton Fisk, Elston Howard, and many more. Take a look below.
