Robert Shaw "Buck" Fausett (April 8, 1908 – May 2, 1994), nicknamed "Leaky", was a Major League Baseball third baseman and pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds during the 1944 season. He saw limited playing time. His main claim to fame occurred during his final game, when he was replaced on the mound by Joe Nuxhall, who was making his Major League debut at age 15, and who still holds the record as the youngest player in Major League history.
