O'Farrell had just a few token appearances in the 1918 World Series, which Chicago lost to Boston (the last time the Red Sox won a WS), because Bill Killefer was the Cubs' primary catcher. In 1926, O'Farrell caught every pitch of the Cardinals' seven-game win over the Yankees. He hit .304 (7-for-23) with a double, two walks and two RBI.
One of the greatest deals in St. Louis Cardinals' history occurred on May 23, 1925. St. Louis acquired O'Farrell for infielder Howard Freiqau and catcher Mike Gonzalez. O'Farrell was a team sparkplug the next four seasons, winning the 1926 MVP Award as the franchise won it's first title.
