Wes Ferrell


A short bio from the Boston Garter Game of the Century card back: Cleveland’s Wes Ferrell is another pitcher with a smoking fast ball Connie Mack can call on to stymie NL batters in the upcoming so-called “all star” game. If Ferrell can control his temper, that is. The hot head was suspended and fined by mgr. Peckinpaugh in 1932 for refusing to leave a game. Under control, Wes is tough to beat. He set a record by winning 20 or more games his first 4 years in the big leagues, and he threw a no-hit game at the St. Louis Browns in 1931. No cake at bat, Ferrell slammed 9 home runs that same year.
