Denny Doyle played second baseman for the Boston Red Sox from 1975 through 1978. Prior to his trade to the Red Sox, he played for the Philadelphia Phillies and the California Angels, although he was not a regular player on either team. His stint as second baseman for the Red Sox was his first opportunity to play regularly throughout the season.

Doyle was born in Glasgow, Kentucky and played baseball throughout college. In 1965, just after graduation, he was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies, and he went on to play for them until 1973, when they traded him to the Angels. He is most famous for a ninth inning play during game six of the 1975 World Series. An attempt to steal home ultimately helped send the game into extra innings, and the Red Sox suffered a loss in the twelfth.
