John Barfield Stats

John Barfield was born on Thursday, October 15, 1964, in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Barfield was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 7, 1989, with the Texas Rangers. 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 John Barfield baseball stats page.

"If the baseball team was a band, pitcher John Barfield was the lead singer. It's how high school teammate Kirk Bock remembers Barfield, the left-handed pitcher who helped lead the Pine Bluff Zebras to a 1983 state championship. Barfield went on to pitch for the Texas Rangers and spend more than a decade in professional baseball. 'A lot of guys kind of forget their roots when they make it, but John never did,' Bock said. Barfield was the life of the party, Bock said, and had a fastball that could just reach above 90 mph. Barfield, 52, died on Christmas Eve after he was shot in the 500 block of Sherman Street in downtown Little Rock earlier Saturday, police said. His death is the 41st homicide of the year for Little Rock." - Ryan Tarinelli in The Arkansas Democrat Gazette (12/26/2016, Little Rock man fatally shot Christmas Eve mourned as talented, caring , Source )
