Biographical Information[edit]

Bud Connolly played 43 games in the infield for the Boston Red Sox in 1925, batting .262/.392/.346. He also had an extensive minor league career. Connolly played from May to July 1925. He hit much better than the most-used shortstop of the season, Dud Lee, who hit .224 with little power. Lee simply had better range in the field. A veteran of World War II, he was born in San Francisco, dying in 1964 in Berkeley during a time of student protest.
