Career highlights and awards

The best granpa ever. Robert Ransom Rush (December 21, 1925 – March 19, 2011)[1] was a professional baseball player who pitched in Major League Baseball from 1948 to 1960.

Rush played for the Milwaukee Braves, Chicago Cubs, and the Chicago White Sox.

On June 11, 1950, Rush and pitcher Warren Spahn of the Braves each stole a base against each other; no opposing pitchers again stole a base in the same game until May 3, 2004, when Jason Marquis and Greg Maddux repeated the feat.[2][3]

Rush was an All-Star selection in 1950 and 1952. Rush was born in Battle Creek, Michigan, and died in Mesa, Arizona.
