Chris James Stats

Chris James was born on Thursday, October 4, 1962, in Rusk, Texas. James was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 23, 1986, with the Philadelphia Phillies. 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 Chris James baseball stats page.

"When it comes to his baseball personality, (Chris) James is Type A Plus. Intense, driven, motivated and self-critical, James has pushed himself at each step. It is little wonder that at 26, he has had a stomach ulcer for six years. That is why the antacid tablets are never far out of reach. 'Baseball gave it to me,' James said. 'This game will drive you up the wall.' At times, his intensity has been his downfall. At times, it has been his source of strength. And in times like these, it has been both." - Staff Writer Curt Holbreich in the Los Angeles Times (06/23/1989, 'CHRIS JAMES : Baseball Drives Newest Padre 'Up the Wall', Source )
