James "Jim" Ray Hart (born October 30, 1941) is a retired third baseman in Major League Baseball. He played for the National League's San Francisco Giants from 1963 to 1973 and the American League's New York Yankees in 1973 and 1974. Hart batted and threw right-handed. In a 12-season career, Hart posted a .278 batting average, with 170 home runs and 578 runs batted in (RBIs) in 1,125 Major League games played.
Hart had some notable achievements in baseball, including playing in the National League All-Star game in 1966, and hitting for the cycle on July 8, 1970. He also became one of a select few players to have six RBIs in one inning. He did this by hitting a three-run triple and a three-run home run in the same game on July 8.
After retiring from the Giants, Hart joined the Teamsters as a Warehouseman for Safeway Stores in Richmond, California, and later to Tracy, California, when operations moved there in 1992. He retired in 2006.
