Gabe Kapler was born on Thursday, July 31, 1975, in Hollywood, California. Kapler was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 20, 1998, with the Detroit Tigers. 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 Gabe Kapler baseball stats page.

"Over the past two years, Kap (Gabe Kapler) has been one of the best in baseball against left-handed pitching. Because he's also a plus defensive outfielder, he's become a tremendous asset here. His value even extends beyond the field; his knowledge and presence make him a positive influence on our younger players." - Tampa Bay Rays Executive Vice President of Baseball Pperations Andrew Friedman on MLB.com (Bill Chastain, 10/27/2009, 'Rays lock up Kapler for one more year')
