Ralph Terry
Ralph Willard Terry (born on January 9, 1936 in Big Cabin, Oklahoma) is a former right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for the New York Yankees (1956–57, 1959–64), Kansas City Athletics (1957–59, 1966), Cleveland Indians (1965) and New York Mets (1966–67). Terry is best remembered for giving up the home run to Bill Mazeroski that won the Pittsburgh Pirates the 1960 World Series. In his 12 seasons as a player, Terry posted a career record of 107-99, with 1000 strikeouts, a 3.27 earned run average, 257 games started, 75 games finished, 20 shutouts, 11 saves, and 446 bases on balls in 1849 innings pitched. His best season was 1962, when he posted a 23-12 won-loss record. He pitched 298-2/3 innings striking out 176, while walking only 57. His 23 victories was the highest in the American League that year. In five World Series (1960–64), Terry posted a record of 2-3, 31 strikeouts and a 2.93 ERA. Both wins came in the 1962 World Series (of which he was named MVP) against the San Francisco Giants, including a 1-0 shutout in Game 7 over Giant ace Jack Sanford. That game—and thus the Series—ended with Yankee second baseman Bobby Richardson catching Willie McCovey's line drive with Willie Mays on second and Matty Alou on third; had the ball been hit a foot or so to either side, Richardson could not have caught it and San Francisco would have scored two runs and won the Series. After baseball, Terry became a professional golfer. Based on his status as a PGA of America Sectional Champion, he qualified for and played in four PGA Tour events in 1981 and 1982. In 1986, he started playing on the Senior PGA Tour. His best finish was a tie for 10th at the 1989 Showdown Classic.
