Chuck Truelson

Charles “Chuck” Truelson

Chuck joined the Mustangs by climbing a fence and wandering over in 2006 and made an immediate impact.

Chuck, originally from New York state was arguably the Mustangs best player in the pre-NBL years, regularly winning MVP awards. During the Mustangs’ 2007 AAA winning season, Chuck was often the difference between a sweep or a split.

Chuck worked nights in Southampton docks and would finish work and sleep in the back of the car as “Mrs Chuck” drove to the game.

He would then pitch and bat fourth in the line-up, coming up with clutch hit after clutch hit.
