This day in baseball: Multiple MVP catchers

On November 7, 1972, Johnny Bench won the National League Most Valuable Player award for the second time in three years.  This makes him only the fourth backstop up to this time to win the award multiple times.  He joins Mickey Cochrane (1928 A’s, 1934 Tigers), Yogi Berra (1951, ’54 Yankees), and Roy Campanella (1951, ’53, ’55 Dodgers) in this achievement.
