Biographical Information[edit]


On August 11, 2010, David Bush set a major league record by giving up four consecutive home runs to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The four gopher balls in an inning also tied a National League record.

After not pitching at all in the majors in 2012, instead playing for the AAA Lehigh Valley IronPigs in the Philadelphia Phillies organization, Bush returned to his first major league team, the Toronto Blue Jays, in 2013. In spite of a poor spring training where he had a 6.23 ERA in 13 innings, he was called up a week into the season when Jeremy Jeffress was designated for assignment after only one unimpressive outing. In his first appearance of the year on April 7th, he relieved R.A. Dickey with the Jays already down 8-0 in the 5th inning, and gave up another 5 runs on 5 hits in 3 innings. Four of those hits were homers. He too was sent down shortly after that outing and never returned to the majors.

Bush coached for the South African national team in the 2017 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers. Since 2019, he has been a pitching coordinator in the minor league system of the Boston Red Sox. In 2020, he was promoted to pitching coach for the major league team.
