King began his professional career in 1950 in the Cardinals' farm system, from which he was drafted by the Cubs as a Rule 5 selection in 1954. After spending 1955 and 1956 on the Cubs' big-league roster, he was traded back to the Cardinals (1957) and then dealt to the Giants (1958), but spent most of the next four seasons in the minor leagues, getting into only 56 total MLB games between 1957 and 1960. In the latter year, he was named the International League Most Valuable Player. That December, King was taken by the brand-new, replacement Washington franchise with the 50th overall selection in the 1960 Major League Baseball expansion draft.

During his major league career, King played in 1,125 games (796 as a Senator), batting .240 with 699 hits, 112 doubles, 19 triples, 117 home runs and 401 runs batted in. Notable games during his career include;
