Carl "Bubba" Reynolds
Carl "Bubba" Reynolds became one of Texas' many legendary baseball stars. A four-sport standout at Southwestern University, he became the fifth four-letter athlete in the school's history. In baseball, he compiled a .500 batting average in his senior year and was later signed by the Chicago White Sox. He played with the White Sox for four years (1927-1931) and then spent time with the Washington Senators (1932, 1936) where, in 1932, he had a .305 batting average. During the rest of his major-league career, he played with the St. Louis Browns (1933), Boston Red Sox (1934-1935), and the Chicago Cubs (1937-1939). By the end of his 13-year career, Reynolds had compiled a .302 batting average and had played in 1,222 games. Reynolds was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1971.
