Charlie Buffinton Stats

Charlie Buffinton was born on Friday, June 14, 1861, in Fall River, Massachusetts. Buffinton was 20 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 17, 1882, with the Boston Red Caps. 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 Charlie Buffinton baseball stats page.

"Unlike the majority of pitchers, when about to deliver the ball, (Charlie) Buffinton squarely faces the batsman. Holding the ball in both hands at arm's length before his face, he nervously twists the sphere about for a moment or two. Then tossing his hands above his head he lifts his left foot from the ground and hops forward on the right. Swinging his right arm down to his side he sends the ball in with but little effort, but with considerable force." - New York World (How Men Pitch Base-Ball, 1886)
