Former White Sox catcher Ed Herrmann died Sunday at the age of 67, according to a report by the Chicago Tribune.

Herrmann played parts of seven seasons on the South Side from 1967 to 1974 and was named an American League All Star in 1974, a season in which he picked up a career-high 95 hits and hit 10 home runs, driving in 39 runs.

On his website, Herrmann described 1970 as his banner year. He hit 19 homers and drove in 52 runs while posting a career-high .862 OPS. His website also says that Herrmann caught a no-hitter and set an MLB record when he was involved in three double plays in one game as a catcher. After baseball, Herrmann stayed involved in the game, coaching, managing and scouting at various levels.

This month, a post on Herrmann's website described that he was suffering from prostate cancer and asked for donations to help with medical expenses.
