Jim Burnes '68 - Baseball

As a junior, Jim Burnes earned All-Conference and All-State honors in football as a defensive back. Sidelined with a knee injury his senior year, Jim was unable to participate in football, yet earned All-Conference and All-State honors in both basketball and baseball. He led the '67-'68 basketball team in scoring (15 ppg) and rebounding (12 rpg). In baseball, he led the '68 team in hitting (.420) and pitching (8 wins-4 losses), and he helped the team win the Region Championship and to the State Semi-Finals. He was selected the most valuable player in both basketball and baseball. The Phoenix American Legion picked Jim as the Baseball Player of the Year in 1969 (.475 avg. and an 8-1 pitching record). Drafted in the first round by the Los Angeles Dodgers and again in the supplemental draft by the Houston Astros in 1970, Jim chose to continue playing baseball at the U of A where he was a key player as a pitcher, outfielder and first-baseman. Unfortunately nagging arm injuries prevented Jim from pursuing a professional baseball career.
