About Brian McCann

Brian Michael McCann (born February 20, 1984) is a Major League Baseball catcher for the Atlanta Braves. He is a six-time All-Star and a five-time Silver Slugger Award winner. McCann made his Major League Baseball debut with the Atlanta Braves on June 10, 2005. A personal catcher for John Smoltz for most of the 2005 season, McCann hit his first home run in just his second regular-season game and became the first Braves player in franchise history to hit a home run in his first playoff at-bat on October 6, 2005. He accomplished the feat in the second inning of a 71 victory over Roger Clemens and the Houston Astros in Game 2 of the 2005 National League Division Series. McCann was named the everyday starter when the Braves traded Johnny Estrada to the Diamondbacks. During the 2006 season, McCann hit .333 with 24 homers and 94 RBI. He led all Major League catchers in homers, and his RBI total was matched only by Jorge Posada and Victor Martinez.
