James Edwin Nash (born February 9, 1945 in Hawthorne, Nevada), commonly nicknamed Jim Nash, is a retired American professional baseball pitcher. He debuted on July 3, 1966 against the Detroit Tigers after then Kansas City Athletics signed him as a free agent. During his rookie season in '66 he went 12-1 as part of the kiddie corps of pitchers featured in Kansas City. Nash would appear on the cover of the March 13, 1967 Sports Illustrated and was featured in a story along with up and coming pitchers Catfish Hunter and Blue Moon Odom.  Nash however failed to live up to the hype from his first two seasons and ended with a career record of 68 wins and 64 losses with a lifetime ERA of 3.58, allowing 1,050 hits and 441 earned runs after little more than 1,100 innings pitched. He went on to play 4 seasons for the Athletics and 3 seasons for the Atlanta Braves, playing his final season with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1972.
