Donald Chris James (born October 4, 1962) is an American former professional baseball utility player, who played in Major League Baseball (MLB) 10 years (1986–1995), for eight teams: the National League (NL) Philadelphia Phillies, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants, and Houston Astros; and the American League (AL) Cleveland Indians, Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals, and Boston Red Sox. Over the course of James’ MLB career, he played first base, third base, outfield, and designated hitter.
James graduated from Stratford High School, in 1981. Chris James is the brother of former SMU and New England Patriots running back Craig James, who appeared on television for ABC, ESPN, and CBS, as a college football analyst, after his NFL career ended.
On May 4, 1991, while playing for the Indians, James had 9 runs batted in (RBI) in a 20 to 6 win over the Oakland Athletics, thereby setting that franchise’s single-game RBI record.
