The Turk at Work: Balls That Talked Trash


The preceding historical reprint is an excerpt from the July 21, 1962 New Orleans Times-Picayune.

1962, of course, was the first season of the new Houston MLB club and Richard “Turk” Farrell was only doing what he was prone to do anytime he saw half a crack in the door of opportunity for fun and mischief at someone else’s expense.

Thank you, Darrell Pittman, for another wonderful research contribution to the body and soul of The Pecan Park Eagle.
