Robert Malcolm Tufts was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the San Francisco Giants ( 1981 ) and Kansas City Royals ( 1982 - 1983 ). When Bob, his nickname, made it to the big leagues on August 10, 1981 , he became the first Lynnfield High School (Lynnfield, MA) graduate to play in the majors.

Bob Tufts told Baseball Almanac, "I really wanted to go to Dartmouth College after high school, not Princeton , but they didn't accept me after I graduated." Tufts graduated from Princeton , with a degree in Economics, and pitched two years for the Tigers. In 1976, he went 5-3 with a 4.06 ERA. In 1977, he went 7-3 with a 2.64 ERA. That senior year, Tufts was scouted by Lennie Merullo ( Chicago Cubs , 1941-1947) and in the 12th round of the 1977 Draft , the Giants selected Bob with the 296th pick.

Did you know that Bob Tufts, during his 27 games pitched, faced 11 future hall of famers, and held 7 of them hitless, including Rod Carew (0-for-3), Reggie Jackson (0-for-2), Eddie Murray (0-for-1), Jim Rice (0-for-1), Ozzie Smith (0-for-1), and Robin Yount (0-for-1)?

Bob Tufts hung up his playing cleats in 1983, and had an amazing post-baseball career; spending twenty-plus years working on Wall Street (Bear Stearns, Credit Agricole, Lehman Brothers, Thomson McKinnon), teaching at several schools (New York University, Manhattanville College, Yeshiva University), guest lecturing on economics (Fordham University, Concordia College, Dickinson College, University of Virginia). He was the co-founder of My Life Is Worth It, a not for profit that advocates for patient access and choice in medical care, but sadly died on October 4, 2019, from an infection brought on by complications from a stem cell transplant.
