Career highlights and awards

Jimmie Le Roy McDonald (May 17, 1927 – October 23, 2004) was an American pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for five different teams between 1950 and 1958. Listed at 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) tall and 185 pounds (84 kg), he batted and threw right-handed. The native of Grants Pass, Oregon, had a 16-year career (1945–1960) in professional baseball.

In the major leagues, McDonald worked a spot starter and filled various roles coming out of the bullpen as a middle reliever and set-up man. He debuted in the midst of the 1950 season with the Boston Red Sox, then joined the St. Louis Browns (1951), New York Yankees (1952–1954), Baltimore Orioles (1955) and Chicago White Sox (1956–1958). He went 3–4 with a 3.50 ERA in 26 appearances for the 1952 Yankees champions, including five starts, but did not pitch during the 1952 World Series. In 1953, he posted career-highs in wins (9), complete games (6), shutouts (2), and innings pitched (129⅔). He also was the starter and winning pitcher in Game 5 of the 1953 World Series over the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field.[1] In that game, McDonald allowed only two runs, both earned, over his first seven innings pitched, as the Yankees built a 10–2 advantage. McDonald faltered somewhat in the eighth, permitting four runs (three of them on a home run by Billy Cox) before he was relieved by left-hander Bob Kuzava. But the Yankees prevailed, 11–7, and won the Series in six games the following day.

In a nine-season MLB career, McDonald posted a 24–27 record with a 4.37 ERA in 136 games, including 55 starts, 15 complete games, three shutouts, 30 games finished, one save. He allowed 489 hits and 231 bases on balls, with 158 strikeouts, in 468 career innings pitched.
