Donald Alvin Buford (February 2, 1937-) holds the record for grounding into the least number of double plays throughout his career with 34 over the course of ten years. Buford signed with the Chicago White Sox as a free agent out of the University of Southern California in 1959 where he led the Trojans to the 1959 College World Series Championship. The switch-hitting utility player became a regular in the White Sox lineup in 1964 when he began an eight-year streak of ten stolen bases or more, including swiping 51 bags in 1966. Due to his penchant for stealing bases, he also led the American League three times in caught stealing. Don played left field and second and third base for White Sox (1963-1967) and the Baltimore Orioles (1968-1972) where he enjoyed his best seasons in 1971 when he led the AL in runs scored and earned his only All-Star selection. Buford helped the Orioles capture the 1970 World Series Championship over the Pittsburgh Pirates in seven games. Don Buford finished his career with a .264 career batting average, had 1,203 hits, scored 718 runs, stole 200 bases and drove in 418. He also posted a .988 fielding percentage over his ten-year career.
