Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Frank) Brower played five seasons in the bigs, with the Senators and Indians , from 1920-24. He hit .286 in his 450 career games, with a season-high 16 homers for Cleveland in 1923. Why Turkeyfoot? From the book ' Baseball Nicknames ' written by James Skipper, an explanation from Brower's daughter: 'His real nickname was Tuckey which he got as a child. Sportswriters thought he said Turkey because of his Southern accent. Later it was changed to Turkeyfoot because he was so fast.'" - Columnist Ryan Fagan in The Sporting News (11/25/2015, Baseball's all-time All-Thanksgiving team', Source )

Frank Willard Brower was a Major League Baseball player with the Washington Senators (1920-1922) and Cleveland Indians (1923-1924). He was originally nicknamed Tuckie, by his family, which (somehow) evolved into Turkeyfoot, and was mentioned as one of the best of the decade:

The best nicknames for baseball players from the 1920s were Union Man , Poosh 'Em Up , Spinach , The Sultan of Swat , The Crown Prince of Swat , The Rajah of Swat , The Rabbi of Swat , Bucketfoot Al , Big Poison , Little Poison , The Mississippi Mudcat , Shufflin' Phil , Camera Eye , Turkeyfoot, Trolley Line , Governor , Slug , and Ol' Stubblebeard .

Did you know that Frank Brower was the first Cleveland Indians player to hit into an unassisted triple play ? On September 14, 1923 , Boston Red Sox first baseman George Burns recorded the fielding feat, but it takes two, and Brower was the hitter at the plate who hit into the history making triple play (first by a first baseman / first by a Red Sox player).
