Bob Boyd Stats

Bob Boyd was born on Wednesday, October 1, 1919, in Potts Camp, Mississippi. Boyd was 31 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 8, 1951, with the Chicago White Sox. 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 Bob Boyd baseball stats page.

"Nicknamed 'Rope' for his line-drive hitting, (Bob) Boyd was the first Oriole regular to bat over .300 with .318 in 1957 and .309 the next year. Despite his high BA, he lacked the home run punch expected from a first baseman and was primarily a pinch hitter in his last seasons." - Author Rich Marazzi in The Ballplayers (1990)
