Lance Clayton Richbourg (December 18, 1897 – September 10, 1975) was an American college and professional baseball player who was a Major League right fielder for eight season between 1921 and 1932. Richbourg played college baseball for the University of Florida, and thereafter, he played professionally for the Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Senators, Boston Braves and Chicago Cubs.

Early years

Richbourg was born in DeFuniak Springs, Florida, in the Florida Panhandle, in 1897.[1] He graduated from Walton High School in DeFuniak Springs. The high school adopted the nickname of "Braves" because Richbourg was a member of the Boston Braves in 1926. [1]

College career

He attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he played for the Florida Gators baseball team for a single season in 1919.[2] He graduated from Florida with a bachelor's degree in 1922. In between stints in the Major Leagues, Richbourg returned to Gainesville to coach the Gators baseball team in 1922 and 1923, and again in 1926.[2] He compiled a win-loss record of 39–21 (.650) in his three seasons as the Gators' head coach.[2]

Richbourg died in Crestview, Florida in 1975; he was 77 years old.
