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 Luis Alvarado baseball stats page.

"The new manager had his sights fixed on 21-year-old shortstop Luis Alvarado to make the big league club. Alvarado, who had played for (Eddie) Kasko in Louisville, Boston's Triple-A farm club, had good credentials; he was a slick fielder and had his best year in the minors in 1969, batting .292 with 166 base hits." - Author Ron Anderson in Long Taters: A Baseball Biography of George "Boomer" Scott (McFarland Publishing, 11/25/2011, Page 179)
