Buckner played 22 major league seasons and collected over 3,700 hits. He spent the first eight years of his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers before being traded to the Chicago Cubs in 1977. 

With the Cubs, Buckner won the National League batting title in 1980 and was named an All-Star in 1981. He was a key player for the Boston Red Sox team that made the 1986 World Series, but is best known for a critical fielding error in Game 6 of the series.
