Terry Turner - 1915/16 M101-4 Sporting News

Terrance Lamont “Terry” Turner (1881-1960) played more games for the Cleveland Naps/Indians than any other player and is often credited for revolutionizing the headfirst slide due to his bad ankles. Turner appeared in five more games than Hall of Fame second baseman Nap Lajoie. Terry played the left side of the infield for most of his career and led the American League four times in fielding percentage at shortstop. Turner played 17 seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates (1901), the Cleveland Naps/Indians (1904-1914/1915-1918) and the Philadelphia Athletics, posting a .958 fielding percentage. He was an average player at the plate, but was adept at breaking up no-hitters having ruined three no-hitters and one perfect game. Terry Turner ended his 17-year career in 1919 having amassed 1,499 hits, 699 runs, 256 stolen bases and 528 RBI while batting .253 in 1,659 games.
