"He (Bob Turley) was no herky-jerky tangle of arms and legs like Dizzy Dean or Cleveland's fireballing Bob Feller , with whose fastball his was sometimes compared. Like the great Walter Johnson Roy Campanella , the Brooklyn Dodgers’ catcher, exclaimed after Turley struck him out three times in succession in a 1956 game. 'When you see me take three swings at three fastballs and not even foul tip one, the fellow throwing 'em must have something. Maybe he was using a little gun to fire that ball up there.'" - Sportswriter Robert D. McFadden in The New York Times (03/30/2013, 'Bob Turley, Pitcher With a Blazing Fastball, Dies at 82', Source )

On April 15, 1954 , thousands of Baltimoreans jammed city streets as the new Baltimore Orioles paraded from downtown to their new home at Memorial Stadium. During the 90-minute parade, the new "Birds" signed autographs, handed out pictures and threw styrofoam balls to crowds as the throng marched down East 33rd Street. 46,354 then watched the Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox , 3–1, to win their home opener and move into first place in the American League. The winning pitcher that day? Bob Turley.
