 Biographical Information
Terry Larkin was both a good player and a criminal. As a player, he was both a pitcher and a position player, with a pitching record of 89-80. He won at least 29 games three years in a row, from 1877 to 1879. As a position player, he appeared in 51 games, mostly at second base, and primarily in 1884 after he got out of prison. As a hitter, his best year was 1878, when he hit .288 with a league-leading 17 walks and also had 4 triples. As a criminal, he spent time in prison for beating his wife and shooting a policeman, and was arrested another time for threatening to shoot his father.
While his birthdate is not known, he is known to have died in 1894, presumably when he was between 40 and 50 years old.
