Career highlights and awards

Edward Francis Bressoud (born May 2, 1932) is a former shortstop in Major League Baseball who played from 1956 through 1967 for the New York and San Francisco Giants (1956–1961), Boston Red Sox (1962–1965), New York Mets (1966) and St. Louis Cardinals (1967). He batted and threw right-handed, stood 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 m) tall and weighed 175 pounds (79 kg).

Early life

Bressoud was born in Los Angeles. He graduated from George Washington High School then attended San Jose State University and the University of California, Los Angeles. He began his pro career in 1950 and missed two minor league seasons in military service during the Korean War.

MLB career

Bressoud reached the majors in 1956 with the Giants. Bressoud spent two years with the MLB club in New York City, then four years after its 1958 transfer to San Francisco. He was the Giants' regular shortstop in both 1959 and 1960, but hit only .251 and .225. Ousted from his regular job by rookie José Pagán in 1961, Bressoud was the first selection of the Houston Colt .45s in the 1961 expansion draft, then was traded to the Red Sox in exchange for their regular shortstop, Don Buddin.

Bressoud played four seasons for Boston, hitting 40 doubles, nine triples, 14 home runs, 79 runs and a career-high 68 RBI in 1962, and 59 extra-bases in 1963, including a career-high 20 home runs and four two-HR games. In 1964 he posted career-numbers in batting average (.293), hits (166), runs (86) and doubles (41), and represented the Red Sox in the All-Star Game. After that, he played for the New York Mets and ended his major league career with the 1967 world champion Cardinals. In the 1967 World Series — against Bressoud's former team, the Red Sox — he appeared in Games 2 and 5 as a late-inning replacement for light-hitting Cardinal shortstop Dal Maxvill, but did not record a plate appearance.

In a 12-season career, Bressoud was a .252 hitter with 925 hits, 94 home runs, and 365 RBI in 1,186 games.

Later life

Following his playing retirement he managed in the minors and scouted for the California Angels.
