Ralph Garr was born on Wednesday, December 12, 1945, in Monroe, Louisiana. Garr was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 3, 1968, with the Atlanta Braves. 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 Ralph Garr baseball stats page.

"Ralph (Garr) is about as aggressive with a bat as anyone I've ever seen. At first you want to tell him to leave those pitches outside the strike zone alone. That is, until you see how many of them he puts between the outfielders for base hits." - Eddie Mathews in Baseball Digest (November 1974)
