Tommy Holmes Stats

Tommy Holmes was born on Thursday, March 29, 1917, in Brooklyn, New York. Holmes was 25 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 14, 1942, with the Boston 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 Tommy Holmes baseball stats page.

When (Tommy) Holmes headed toward his consecutive-game batting record, he used an old bat given to him by his third-base coach, Del Bissonette, who became the Braves' manager later in the season. "I cracked my bat when the streak reached about 20 games," Holmes once recalled. "I had some others but none I liked particularly. We had an off day, and Bissonette said: 'I'll get you a bat. I'm going up to my home in Maine. I'll bring you back a piece of concrete from my attic.' "It was like a rock," Holmes remembered. "It had been aging. But I tried it in batting practice and I liked it." - Sportswriter Richard Goldstein in the New York Times (April 15, 2008)
