Jim Busby - 1951 Bowman

James Franklin Busby (1927-1996) played center field for 13 years in the Major Leagues with six different teams. The Chicago White Sox signed Busby out of Texas Christian University in 1948 and he debuted in 1950. Busby was a good hitter with a superb glove and led the league twice in putouts, led once in fielding percentage and earned a 1951 All-Star Game selection. Jim stole ten or more bases four times from 1951-1955. He spent time with the White Sox (1950-1952, 1955), the Washington Senators (1952-1955), the Cleveland Indians (1956-1957) the Baltimore Orioles (1957-1958, 1960-1961), the Boston Red Sox 1959-1960) and the Houston Colt .45’s (1962). Jim posted a .988 career fielding percentage with 3,284 putouts, 68 assists, 16 double plays and 42 errors in 3,394 chances. Over his 13-year career, he batted .262 with 1,113 hits, 541 runs, 438 stolen bases and 438 RBI.
