Any catcher could be equated with a hockey player, specifically goalies, based on the sheer amount of abuse they take over the course of a season. Foul tips, blocking pitches, catching hard throwers, physical confrontations at the plate and the toll of crouching for 9 months of the year can have devastating effects on the body. Plus, they usually are the quarterback/director of the team.
Gretzky and Greg Maddux. Both employed immense skill, finesse and the ability to outsmart their opponents while not having the greatest physical attributes.
Barry Sanders/Bobby Orr/Sandy Koufax/Mike Bossy/Joe Dimaggio. Medium length careers with very high peaks and they all left when there seemed to be so much gas left in the tank. Orr and Koufax retired because their injuries.
