From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frederick Lealand Talbot (June 28, 1941 in Washington, D.C.), is a retired professional baseball player who played pitcher in the Major Leagues from 1963-1970. He would play for the New York Yankees, Kansas City Athletics, Seattle Pilots, Chicago White Sox, and Oakland Athletics.

Talbot is one of the more memorable Pilots in Jim Bouton's book Ball Four. Bouton had a somewhat antagonistic relationship with Talbot dating back to their days as Yankee teammates, but Talbot's near-constant stream of funny stories and put-downs leads Bouton to admit, "Talbot is in rare form these days." Talbot would go on to be traded to Oakland only five days after Bouton was traded to the Houston Astros.
