Ricky Terrazas is a Cuban former professional baseball pitcher who played 17 seasons in the Bull League with the Chicago Pit Bulls, Montreal Metros and Toronto Ducks. He is regarded as one of the greatest pitchers of all-time, having received a record nine Sandy Koufax Awards, three MVP awards, and 10 All-Star selections. He was elected to the Bull League Hall of Fame in 2019 on his first ballot, with 99.4% of the votes.

Once considered one of the league's premier dominant power pitchers, he amassed 1,899 strikeouts, putting him 3rd on the career all-time leaderboard, and the top among Hall of Famers.

He is the current holder of several Bull League pitching records, including most strikeouts in a season (195), lowest opponent OBP in a season (.214), lowest opponent OPS in a season (.426) and career (.580), and lowest career opponent slugging percentage (.306).[1]

He is one of only two pitchers to win the Triple Crown twice, which for pitchers entails having the lowest ERA title, the win title, and the strikeout title in a season. He took the Triple Crown in 2005 and in 2012.[2]

Team History

Minor Leagues

Ricky Terrazas was an international free agent who signed a minor league contract with the Chicago Pit Bulls on July 7, 1996. However, we would not be placed on a team for another three years, when he joined the Kensington Judges, the AAA-level Cow League affiliate of the Pit Bulls.

He was on the team for 8 games, mainly in a starter role, but also making two relief appearances. His final stats for that year included a 1-1 win-loss record, 1 save, an unimpressive 4.08 ERA, and a mediocre K/BB ratio of 1.67.
