Gene Desautels from the Chronology
Aug 11, 1942 - At Cleveland in the first game of a twi-nighter Indian P Al Milnar has a no-hitter until Doc Cramer singles with 2 out in the 9th. But the duel with Detroit's Tommy Bridges ends in a 14-inning scoreless tie because the rules state the game cannot be continued under the lights. Milnar allows just two hits and his catcher Gene Desautels catches the entire game without a putout (no strikeouts) or assist.
Dec 12, 1940 - Washington sends Gee Walker to the Red Sox for Doc Cramer. Walker is then packed off to Cleveland with P Jim Bagby Jr. OF and C Gene Desautels for C Frankie Pytlak IF Odell Hale and P Joe Dobson. At the end of the War on December 12 1945 Bagby will return to the Red Sox. Boston also buys Pete Fox from Detroit.
