Jim Busby

James Franklin Busby (January 8, 1927 – July 8, 1996) was an American center fielder in Major League Baseball and right-handed batter who played for the Chicago White Sox (1950–52, 1955), Washington Senators (1952–55), Cleveland Indians (1956–57), Baltimore Orioles (1957–58, 1960–61), Boston Red Sox (1959–60) and Houston Colt .45's (1962).

Busby was born in Kenedy, Texas, and attended Texas Christian University. He was signed by the White Sox as an amateur free agent in 1948 and made his major league debut in the 1950 season.

A fast runner and a good contact hitter, Busby was a superb outfielder who committed only 42 errors in 3394 total chances (.988). He was an All-Star in 1951.

In his 13-year career Busby batted .262, with 48 home runs, 438 RBI, 541 runs, 1,113 hits, 162 doubles, 35 triples, and 97 stolen bases in 1352 games.

Busby spent part of 1961 as a coach for the Orioles. When his career ended, in the middle of the 1962 season, he became a full-time coach for Houston (through 1967), then spent eight seasons (1968–75) on the staff of the Atlanta Braves. He then moved back to the American League to finish his coaching career with the White Sox (1976) and Seattle Mariners (1977–78). Jim Busby died in Augusta, Georgia, at 69 years of age.
