Jim Britton

James Allan Britton (born March 25, 1944) is a retired Major League Baseball pitcher who played from 1967 to 1971 with the Atlanta Braves and Montreal Expos. He was 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m) tall and weighed 225 pounds.

Britton was born in North Tonawanda, New York. In 1961, Britton refused a football scholarship to Penn State University and signed as an amateur free agent with the Baltimore Orioles. On November 26, 1962, the Braves drafted him in the first-year draft.

On September 20, 1967 at the age of 23, Britton made his Major League debut with the Braves. During this game he gave up a three run home run to Johnny Bench - the first of Bench's career. Perhaps his best season in the Major Leagues was his second - in 34 games, he had an ERA of 3.10.

On December 2, 1969, Britton was traded with Don Johnson, a minor leaguer, to the Montreal Expos for pitcher Larry Jaster. Expected to be a spot starter the following season, he missed that season due to arm trouble. On September 25, 1971, Britton played his final major league game.

As a batter, Britton hit .127. The highlight of his hitting career would be the double he hit in 1969. Fielding, Britton committed two errors in his career for a .952 fielding percentage. During his career, he wore three numbers - 27 in 1967, 42 in 1968 and 1969, and 27 in 1971.
