Tigers playing with Joplin on mind (Columbia Tribune, 5/28/2011)The jersey design is from '00-'03, from the James Boone era. Kelly Fick, who wore #21 in 2011, pitched the game of his career in Game #4 of the Big 12 Tournament to send the Tigers in the championship game, while the Joplin jersey hung in the dugout.
Hanging in Missouri's home dugout is a No. 21 jersey from the 2002-03 era that was discovered among the rubble in Joplin.
A photo was posted online, and catcher Ben Turner sent a text message to his father, Mark, who had driven into St. Louis on Friday to watch his younger son play a high school game. Mark Turner stopped in Joplin between 11 p.m. and midnight on the drive back to Oklahoma City to pick up the tattered jersey.
That was the only piece of property former KOMU reporter Brandon Spiegel, now working in Joplin, could find in the remains, miles away from his home.
“He goes, 'Take it and put it in their dugout,'” Mark Turner said. “ 'It kind of represents what you guys have done this year between the first half and the second half of the season.'”
