8/3 Ironman Hill

Koyie Hill is just the seventh Cubs catcher in the last 50 seasons to have started at least 20 consecutive games in one season behind the plate. Randy Hundley had at least one 40-game streak every season from 1967 to 1970, including a 79-game stretch from April 15-July 8, 1967. Besides Hundley, the list includes George Mitterwald, Tim Blackwell, Barry Foote, Jody Davis, and Damon Berryhill. Thanks to Ed Hartig for the research.
