Michael "Mike" Tresh was a catcher in Major League Baseball. From 1938 through 1949, he played for the Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians. Tresh batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. His son, Tom, also played in the major leagues from 1961–69. In a 12-season career, Tresh posted a .249 batting average with two home runs and 297 RBI in 1027 games played. His best season was 1940, when he batted .281 with 64 RBI, 62 runs, and 135 hits – all career-highs. In 1945 Tresh was durable enough to catch all 150 White Sox games in 1945. He is just one of three 20th century catchers to catch every one of an MLB team's games in a season. The others are Frankie Hayes and Ray Mueller, each with 155 caught games in 1944. Tresh died at the age of 52 in Detroit, Michigan, and is interred at Michigan Memorial Park in Flat Rock, Michigan.
