Smokey Burgess

Biography:Smokey Burgess (February 6, 1927 - September 15, 1991) was an American catcher in Major League Baseball who later in his career became known for his ability as a pinch hitter.

Born in Caroleen, North Carolina, Burgess was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 1944 and broke into the majors in 1949.

By the time he had retired from baseball in 1967, Burgess had played for the Cubs, Philadelphia Phillies, Cincinnati Reds, Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Sox. He played in five All-Star games and set the then-record of 145 career pinch-hits. Along with Curt Simmons, he was the last player to formally retire who had played in the major leagues in the 1940's (not counting Minnie MiƱoso who un-retired twice).

Other career statistics include a .295 career batting average with 126 home runs, 673 RBI and a .362 on base percentage. He accumulated 1318 career hits with 230 doubles and 33 triples.

Burgess died at age 64 in Asheville, North Carolina. He was inducted into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame in 1975.
