Jim Delsing

1951 Bowman

James Henry “Jim” Delsing (November 13, 1925 - May 4, 2006) was used to pinch-run for Bill Veeck’s gimmick, midget Eddie Gaedel, in the 1951 game against the Detroit Tigers. Delsing played outfield for ten years in the majors for the Chicago White Sox (1948, 1956), New York Yankees (1949-1950), St. Louis Browns (1950-1952) Detroit Tigers (1952-1956) and Kansas City Athletics (1960). Delsing’s best season came in 1953 with the Tigers as he batted .288 with 77 runs, 138 hits and 11 home runs in 138 games. He famously quipped, “Maris may have hit 61, but I’m the one who ran for a midget.” Jim Delsing finished his career with 627 hits including 112 doubles and 40 home runs, batted .255 over his career and drove in 286 runs.
