Guy Bush

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Guy Terrell Bush (August 23, 1901 - July 2, 1985) gave up Boston Braves slugger Babe Ruth’s final two home runs including a towering blast that cleared the Forbes Field right field grandstand and reportedly landed 600 feet away. Bush was a durable pitcher for the Chicago Cubs for twelve seasons, utilized as both a starter and reliever. Guy remains among the top ten winningest pitchers in Chicago Cubs franchise history. From 1926-1935, Bush posted double digit wins culminating in the 1932 and 1933 season when he won 19 and 20 games respectively. In 1929, he led the league in game appearances with 50 and had 8 saves to lead the league for a second time in his career, the other being 1925 with 4. One shining moment in Guy’s career was when he out-dueled Boston Braves starter Charles Robertson in an eighteen-inning marathon game. He helped the Cubs win the National League pennants in 1929 and 1932, but Chicago lost both World Series. He pitched 17 seasons with the Chicago Cubs (1923-1934), the Pittsburgh Pirates (1935-1936), the Boston Braves 91936-1937), the St. Louis Cardinals (1938) and the Cincinnati Reds (1945). He returned to Major League Baseball during the 1945 season as many of the current players were serving in the military during World War II. Guy Bush finished his career with a 176-136 record with 308 games stared and 144 games finished in 542 games and added 850 strikeouts and a 3.86 ERA.
