Turk Wendell

Steven John Wendell
Batted: Left

Born: May 19, 1967 in Pittsfield, MA

Mets fans were routinely thrilled for 3 years by Turk slamming the rosin bag down behind the mound, fanning a flailing opponent, and then skipping across the baseline on his way back to the dugout. Pictured in full bear-claw and antler-tip regalia here on his 1999 Fleer Tradition card.
