Bill Buckner Booking Agent Details
Bill Buckner played 22 years in the Major Leagues, primarily for the Chicago Cubs and Boston Reds Sox. He had a lifetime batting average of .289 with 2,715 hits, 174 home runs, 498 doubles and 1,208 RBI’s. He won one batting title and was named an All-Star in 1981. He is one of a small number of players who had 200 hit-seasons in both leagues and played in four decades. Buckner first made it to the majors with the Dodgers in 1969 at the age of 19 and was hitless in his one at-bat. He won a permanent starting job in 1971. He split time in the outfield and at first base, hitting .271 with 5 HR and 41RBI. One interesting side note regarding Buckner’s time with the Dodgers is that he was playing leftfield when Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s home run record on April 8, 1974. In a five-player deal in 1977, Buckner and Ivan DeJesus were traded to the Cubs for Rick Monday. The move also saw Buckner shift primarily to first base. Buckner enjoyed success with the Cubs, winning the National League batting title in 1980 after hitting .324 and playing in the 1981 All-Star game. He also led the league in doubles twice in 1981 and 1983. In 1984, the Cubs traded Buckner to the Red Sox for pitchers Dennis Eckersley and Mike Brumley. Buckner immediately became the starting first baseman. After retiring in 1990, Buckner stayed involved in baseball, coaching six years for the Toronto Blue Jays and Chicago White Sox.
