I've heard Steve Yeager had the best pop-to-pop time in Baseball...An average of 1.65, which is pretty astronomical. That takes a mix of amazingly quick footwork, a real cannon of an arm, and accuracy--to save time on the tag.

Guys like Carlton Fisk and Ivan Rodriguez (both nicknamed "Pudge" by the way), had/have averages of around 1.80 to 1.85 throughout their careers. The major league average is around 2.0 to 2.1, so that gives an idea of how quickly Yeager was able to get in down there.


Incorrect. Sorry, but mlb average is 1.85 to 1.95. Pudge Rodriguez was consistently in the 1.7s, and may of touched in the 1.6s, but I'm pretty sure Steve Yeager never had an average of 1.65. He may of touched 1.65 a few times, but as to the best average pop times, no one beats Ivan Rodriguez and Johnny Bench.
