Jim Scott Burton (born October 27, 1949 in Royal Oak, Michigan) is a former middle relief pitcher who played for the Boston Red Sox (1975, 1977). He batted right-handed and threw left-handed, standing 6 feet 3 inches (1.91 m) tall and weighing 175 pounds (79 kg). The Red Sox drafted Burton out of the University of Michigan in the first round (5th pick) of the 1971 draft. Burton was 25 years old when he made his debut in the big leagues on June 10, 1975. His uniform number was 43. Burton is best known as the losing pitcher of Game 7 of the 1975 World Series. After Red Sox manager Darrell Johnson pinch hit for closer Jim Willoughby in the bottom of the eighth inning, Burton was sent to the mound for the top of the ninth inning to face the Cincinnati Reds in a 3-3 tie game.show more
