Arthur Irwin Stats

Arthur Irwin was born on Sunday, February 14, 1858, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Irwin was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 1, 1880, with the Worcester Ruby Legs. 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 Arthur Irwin baseball stats page.

"(Arthur) Irwin is best known for popularizing the fielder's glove. Not wanting to miss any games after he broke two fingers on his left hand in a game, Irwin improvised and made a glove from a large driving glove, adding padding, a button at the back, and sewed the 3rd and 4th fingers together. The glove was soon adopted by other players and became known as the 'Irwin Glove'. -Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame
