Biographical Information[edit]

Buck Jordan played 10 seasons in the big leagues. A particular skill was that he hardly ever struck out.

Jordan was a regular on Boston Braves teams from 1933-36 under skipper Bill McKechnie. He was sold to the 1937 Reds early in the 1937 season.

Jordan played in the minors beginning in 1925 and ending in 1942 as a player-manager. He mostly hit over .300, including twice when he hit over .350 in the International League in the early 1930's.

Although he played mostly first base in the majors (with some third base), in his early years in the minors he was a shortstop.

He managed in the North Carolina State League in 1942, leading the Lexington Indians to a 55-44 record and a fifth place finish in the 8-team circuit.
