Richard Benjamin "Rick" Ferrell (October 12, 1905 – July 27, 1995) was an American professional baseball player, coach, scout and executive. He played for 18 seasons as a catcher, in Major League Baseball, from 1929 to 1947 for the St. Louis Browns, Boston Red Sox and Washington Senators. His brother, Wes Ferrell, was a major league pitcher for 15 seasons, and they were teammates from 1933 to 1937. Following his three seasons in minor league baseball, he appealed to the Commissioner of Baseball to become a free agent, claiming that he was being held in the minors though he deserved promotion. The Commissioner agreed, and he was granted free agency; he signed with the St. Louis Browns.
