Floyd Baker Stats

Floyd Baker was born on Tuesday, October 10, 1916, in Luray, Virginia. Baker was 26 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 4, 1943, with the St. Louis Browns. 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 Floyd Baker baseball stats page.

"(Floyd) Baker turned down a football scholarship to sign with the (St. Louis) Browns. After an unimpressive beginning epitomized by his two strikeouts as a pinch hitter in the 1944 World Series, Baker developed into one of the best fielders in the A.L." - Author William Brashler in BaseballLibray.com
