A New Bedford welcome

New Bedford Standard, Monday, August 18, 1906

The Whalers greeted the team's newest member yesterday, when second baseman Patrick O'Farrell arrived at the grounds.

O'Farrell comes from the same Richmond club that sent Bill Carrigan our way, and if he demonstrates the same skill and pep as "Rough" has in a Whaler outfit, he will do just fine.

The 18-year-old O'Farrell was leading the Virginia League, a Class C loop, with a sparkling .387 percentage, with 10 home runs and 46 stolen bases. Says Carrigan of his once and future teammate, "Patrick is a very good second baseman defensively. He seems to know where the ball is going before it leaves the bat."
