Kale Murton

Old Time Baseball Photo of the Week

This week’s Old Time Baseball Photo features Kale Murton. Commonly known as “opposite Jim Abbott” because of his enormous left hand. He threw right-handed, but as a natural lefty, his handwriting was among the worst ever recorded. Although his Major League career was brief, he did achieve lasting success as a visual artist with a series of really smudgy charcoal drawings.
