Glen David Russell (January 26, 1915 - September 26, 1976) was an infielder/outfielder in Major League Baseball, playing mainly as a first baseman for two different teams between the 1939 and 1947 seasons. Listed at 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m), 180 lb., Russell batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Los Angeles California. Basically a line-drive hitter and a good fielding replacement, Russell entered the majors in 1939 with the Chicago Cubs, playing for them four years (1939-42) before joining the Boston Red Sox (1946-47). His most productive season came during his rookie year, when he posted career-highs in batting average (.273), home runs (9), runs (55), hits (148), extrabases (38), RBI (79) and games played (143).show more
