Bill Buckner, a 1B-OF for the Dodgers, Cubs, and Red Sox, passed away on May 27, 2019 at age 69.
Buckner was a 4-decade player by virtue of his one pinch-hitting appearance on 9/21/69. (His next game was the following April.) He played until the end of May 1990.
Buckner played for the Dodgers (1969-76), Cubs (1977-84), and Red Sox (1984-87), then moved around to 3 other teams (Angels, Royals, Red Sox) in his final 2 1/2 seasons.
He was an All-Star in 1981, and led the NL in batting in 1980 with a .324 average. He also topped .300 six other times and hit .299 another year. Buckner also had 100+ RBI in '82, '85, and '86.
Despite all that hitting prowess, the first thing most people remember is his defensive miscue in the 1986 World Series.
After his playing career, Buckner moved to Idaho and entered the real estate business.
