Wes & Rick Ferrell. Rick is a Hall of Fame catcher who spent some of his career with the Senators and Red Sox, but also with the St. Louis Browns. Who I’m very interested in learning more about ever since my jaunt to St. Louis and purchase of a Browns cap.
Meanwhile, Wes Ferrell was a star pitcher in his own right, and possibly the best hitting pitcher in major league history - 37 career homers, a six-RBI game at the plate, and a bat good enough that he’d play in the outfield between starts. He had a year where he went 25-14 and hit .347, which And he had a temper.
From his SABR bio:
“During the 1936 season, Ferrell walked off the field in disgust and refused to continue pitching twice in the space of five days, angered each time by his teammates’ defensive shortcomings. On the second occasion he was fined $1,000 and suspended for ten days. Ferrell’s reaction was to threaten to punch the manager, Joe Cronin, in the nose.”
He also once refused to come out of a game for a number of minutes, and upon removal, began punching himself in the jaw and slamming his head into a concrete wall. And that was with his brother there to calm him down.
Rick Ferrell’s SABR bio is also an excellent read.
