 Biographical Information
Gordon Goldsberry, who played four seasons in the major leagues as a first baseman, had movie star looks, dressed well, and was said to be a good fielder. He was sometimes known as "Gordy" or "Goldie".
He got the most at-bats in his career with the St. Louis Browns in 1952. Managed by first Rogers Hornsby and then Marty Marion, the team finished 7th in the league. Goldsberry had 227 at-bats and hit .229, playing at first base almost as much as Dick Kryhoski, who hit .243.
In 1953, he was with the Seattle Rainiers of the PCL. He was then traded to the White Sox, but never appeared at the major league level after that with them.
After his playing career ended, Goldsberry worked as a scout for the Chicago Cubs. He was the Cubs' Director of Player Development from 1982 to 1985 and Scouting Director from 1986 to 1988. He moved to the Baltimore Orioles as a special assistant to the GM from 1989 to 1996.
