Justin Turner Father John And Mother Betsy Turner
Justin Turner parents John and Betsy Turner raised him and his sister Jillian Turner in California.
His mother Betsy was an engineer at Boeing Airlines while his father John coached baseball.
The 38-year-old grew up in a household that didn't search for alternatives to hard work. The baseballer had seen his dad work two jobs, one which he did to run the family and the other to fulfill his passion.
Justin's father John Turner began his job at NC Dynamics as a machinist in 1980. Now he heads the manufacturing facility as its vice president. He would leave work in the afternoon and then join his baseball team, Mayfair High and coach them until 6.
A pragmatic and no-nonsense man, John Turner would not let the dad's role trump his coach's role. At first, many would be put off by John's belligerence on the pitch side, but in the end, the father-of-two would win everyone with his talented skill set.
It was John who began the trend of playing baseball in the Turner family. A collegiate baseball player, John's potential didn't translate into higher leagues. Nevertheless, the old man's impact on his son's career goes without saying was huge.
Betsy Turner worked at Boeing Airlines, and it hasn't been long since she decided to retire. She began as a human resources manager, but her ambition took her up to become an engineer for the company.
That ambition certainly transferred to her son and not only the ambition but also the red hair that he is famous for and gets his nickname "Red". In 2017, the first baseman shared a tribute to his mom on Mother's Day as he thanked her for always keeping the family first, a trait that is universal amongst mothers.
