Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Baxter Byerly (Buck) Jordan (January 16, 1907 - March 18, 1993) was a first baseman in Major League Baseball who played for the New York Giants (1927-1929), Washington Senators (1931), Boston Braves (1932-1937[start]), Cincinnati Reds (1937[end]-1938[start]) and Philadelphia Phillies (1938[end]). Jordan batted left-handed and threw right-handed. He was born in Cooleemee, North Carolina. A solid defensive first baseman and basically a line-drive hitter, Jordan posted high batting averages in the minor leagues, but his lack of power made him nothing to be feared at major league level. After playing in part of three seasons with the Giants and Senators, he became a regular with the Boston Braves in 1933 as he twice topped .300, with a career-high .323 in 1936.show more
