Earl Averill Stats

Earl Averill was born on Wednesday, May 21, 1902, in Snohomish, Washington. Averill was 26 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 16, 1929, with the Cleveland Indians. 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 Earl Averill baseball stats page.

"From his very first at bat, when he hit a home run, Earl Averill was toasted and griddle caked and coffeed as one of the most popular players in Cleveland history. A left-handed, dead-pull hitter, Averill took dead aim on the cozy right field stands in old League Park, situated just 290 feet down the line from home plate, dropping in home run after home run." - Author Bert Randolph Sugar in The Great Baseball Players from McGraw to Mantle: With 248 Historic Photographs from the Archives of Photo File, Inc. (Dover Publications, 01/28/1997, Page 75)
