Jerry Terrell

1979 Topps 

Terrell spent eight years playing in the big leagues from 1973-1980. He broke in with the Minnesota Twins in 1973 and set career highs in games played (124) and hits (116) while batting .265 as a rookie. Terrell remained a starter for Minnesota for the next two seasons but saw his playing time decrease in 1976 and 1977. He signed with the Kansas City Royals in 1978 and spent the next three seasons as a reserve. He was a member of the Royals’ 1980 World Series team, but did not play in the playoffs.


No one has ever written as much as Terrell did. Almost three pages, handwritten even!


As Terrell explains, he played all nine positions during his MLB career. He pitched two total innings, giving up one hit and no runs and retired the side on three pitches in his first appearance.


Following his playing career Terrell was a scout for the Royals, Twins and Montreal Expos.
