Fred Talbot, R.I.P.

Former big league pitcher Fred Talbot passed away on January 11th after a long illness. He was 71. 

Talbot pitched from 1963 to 1970 with the Chicago White Sox, the Kansas City/Oakland A’s, the New York Yankees and the Seattle Pilots. He finished his career with a record of 38-56 with an ERA of 4.12 ERA. 

Talbot is best remembered for his half season with the Pilots where he became a central character in Jim Bouton’s Ball Four. 

I leave you with Bouton telling a story of how he and the Pilots bullpen sent Talbot a fake telegram after Talbot hit a grand slam which won a fan $25,000.
