Vince Coleman Stats

Vince Coleman was born on Friday, September 22, 1961, in Jacksonville, Florida. Coleman was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 18, 1985, with the St. Louis Cardinals. 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 Vince Coleman baseball stats page.

"I remember one game up in Montreal.(Vince) Coleman led off with a single, and their starting pitcher, a guy named Dave Palmer , got so paranoid about Vince's lead, he threw to the bag not once, not twice, but nineteen times in a row. That's how anxious he was...I think it just got Coleman's motor running. By the time Palmer came to the plate, Vince was covered neck to kneecaps in Canada dirt. Still, first pitch, he was off and running and into second in a cloud of dust. They couldn't stop him!" - Whitey Herzog in You're Missin' a Great Game: From Casey to Ozzie, the Magic of Baseball and How to Get It Back (Simon & Schuster, 02/01/2007, Page 57)
