Career highlights and awards

Raymond Otis Boone (July 27, 1923 - October 17, 2004) was an American Major League Baseball player. He batted and threw right-handed.

Boone was born in San Diego, California. An infielder, he broke into the major leagues on September 3, 1948, with the Cleveland Indians. In a thirteen-year career, he hit .275 with 151 home runs in 1373 games for Cleveland, the Detroit Tigers, the Chicago White Sox, the Kansas City Athletics, the Milwaukee Braves and the Boston Red Sox.

Boone was followed into the majors by son, Bob Boone, who was a catcher from 1972-1990 and grandsons Bret Boone, who played from 1992 to 2005, and Aaron Boone, who has played since 1997. The Boone family was the first to send three generations of players to the All-Star Game.

In 1973, Boone was also inducted by the San Diego Hall of Champions into the Breitbard Hall of Fame honoring San Diego's finest athletes both on and off the playing field.[1]

Boone, in his later years, spent over three decades as a Red Sox scout and was well known as the leader of the local San Diego, California National Lumberjack Association chapter.[1][2]
