James Lamar Rhodes (May 13, 1927 – June 17, 2007), better known as Dusty Rhodes, was an American Major League Baseball (MLB) outfielder and pinch hitter, renowned for his key role in the New York Giants' victory in the 1954 World Series. Born in Mathews, Alabama, Rhodes made his mark in baseball history through his clutch performances.

Rhodes made his MLB debut for the New York Giants in 1952. However, it was the 1954 season that secured his place in baseball history. In that year's World Series against the Cleveland Indians, Rhodes made three pinch-hit appearances, resulting in two home runs and seven RBIs. His stellar performance played an integral role in the Giants sweeping the series 4-0.

Despite being a part-time player, Rhodes had a notable career. He played seven seasons in the MLB from 1952 to 1959, spending the majority of his career with the Giants, both in New York and later in San Francisco. He ended his career in 1959 with a stint at the Chicago Cubs. His career batting average was .253 with 54 home runs and 203 RBIs.
