Jim Sundberg

Biography:Jim Sundberg (born May 18, 1951 in Galesburg, Illinois) is a former Major League Baseball catcher for a number of teams, most significantly the Texas Rangers. He batted and threw right-handed. As of February 2006 he is employed by the Texas Rangers as Executive Director to the President.

Sundberg graduated from the University of Iowa. In 1974, he made the rare jump from Class A level baseball to the major leagues with the Rangers, and finished fourth in the Rookie of the Year balloting (teammate Mike Hargrove won the award).

He was mostly known for being one of the best fielding catchers of all time. He has a .993 all-time fielding percentage, and won 6 straight Gold Glove Awards. He completed 145 double plays in 1927 games in his career.

Sundberg ended his career with 1493 hits in 6021 at bats, good for a .248 batting average. He had 95 home runs and 624 RBI's in 1962 games. Sundberg won a World Series with the Kansas City Royals in 1985 (See: 1985 World Series).

Sundberg was the first catcher to win 6 American League Gold Gloves, although Bob Boone won 5 in the AL and two more in the NL.

Despite his popularity and success, the Rangers never retired his uniform number-10-which is currently being worn by Michael Young.
