Default RIP Bob Turley

"Bullet" Bob Turley who found fame with the Yanks as a Cy Young winner and hero of the 1958 World Series had died at the age of 82. Turley was a hard throwing no windup right hander. People forget that with all their vaunted power hitting the Stengel era Yanks were also loaded with good pitching. Turley was part of that. An Illinois native, he was born in Troy (Madison County) and graduated from East St. Louis Central High School.
