Tommy Cason Thomas Cason was orignally drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 30th round (684th overall) out of South Georgia Junior College in the 1968 Amateur Entry Draft.

The undersized outfielder, standing just 5-9, who batted lefty but threw righty, opted to attend university rather than go pro at the time and was subsequently drafted again in 1971 -- this time by the Boston Red Sox in the 15th round (349th overall).

In 1973, Tommy Cason would make his debut in Bristol patrolling the Muzzy Field outfield alongside Jim Rice and Fred Lynn.

The following season, in 1974, Cason's baseball career would be cut short on May 22 when he blew out his knee while playing for the Winston-Salem Red Sox.

The Brunswick, Georgia native returned to his hometown following his baseball career and as of April 2008, is a golf professional ( at Jekyll Island.
