Career highlights and awards

Sidney Charles Hudson (December 31, 1914 – October 10, 2008) was a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for the Washington Senators (1940-1942, 1946-1952) and Boston Red Sox (1952-1954). He batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Coalfield, Tennessee.



In a 12-season career, Hudson posted a 104-152 record with 734 strikeouts and a 4.28 ERA in 2181.0 innings pitched. Following his pitching career, he scouted for the Red Sox from 1955 through 1960, then joined the expansion edition of the Senators in 1961 as the team's first pitching coach. He spent three different terms (1961-65; 1968-72; 1976-78) in that role, and — in between those assignments — also was a minor league pitching instructor for Washington and, after 1972, its successor franchise, the Texas Rangers. After leaving professional baseball, he was a pitching coach for Baylor University's varsity baseball team. During his playing days, Sid pitched on Babe Ruth Day at Yankee Stadium in front of 58,000 fans in one of Babe's last ever public appearances

At the time of his death, at 93 years of age, Hudson was one of the oldest living major league players. He died in Waco, Texas.
