Cecil Edward Espy (born January 20, 1963) is a former professional baseball player who played in the Major Leagues, primarily as an outfielder, in 1983 and 1987-1993.


Espy was a first-round pick of the Chicago White Sox in the 1980 Major League Baseball draft, the eighth player chosen, ahead of such other first-round picks as Terry Francona and Billy Beane. He was traded in the spring of 1982 to the Los Angeles Dodgers for outfielder Rudy Law.[1]

Making his big-league debut at age 20 on Sept. 2, 1983 with the Dodgers as a late-season call-up, Espy appeared in 11 games. He then had to wait until 1987 to return to the majors.

His best season came with the Texas Rangers in 1987, playing every day, batting .257 and stealing 49 bases. Espy was released by the Cincinnati Reds in 1993.
