Paul Cook played seven seasons in the majors, split among three different leagues, primarily as a catcher. Since his hitting was weak (he never hit a single home run), it is probable that he was an esteemed catcher. Pictures of him show a professional looking defensive player. See Picture 1 and Picture 2. He also played in the Western Association.
