Buddy was originally from Gastonia, North Carolina, playing a total of 11 years here. Not only that, but he was a solid player, finishing up with over 1,500 hits and a .297 career average. And this was a career with a four-year gap, while he was flying 350 missions over Europe, fighting Nazi Germany.

Buddy passed away on February 18th, 2011, at the age of 94.
