Year Inducted: 1971

James B. Trumbower '26 was adept in all phases of the game of baseball. He was a ball hawk in the outfield, where he showed exceptional speed and a strong and accurate arm. Small, but strong, the "Little Giant" was a timely hitter and a daring base runner. Occasionally, Short Trumbower would be used as a starting pitcher. He served as captain of the 1926 Bruin nine.
