Ted Abernathy was born on Monday, March 6, 1933, in Stanley, North Carolina. Abernathy was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 13, 1955, with the Washington Senators. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Ted Abernathy baseball stats page.

"With the unique underhand motion, (Ted) Abernathy's curveball rises and his fastball sinks. He's almost impossible to hit when you only get one shot at him. You see the overhand stuff all the time, then this guy comes in there throwing the ball from out of the ground." - 1971 Kansas City Royals Yearbook
