Jason Bay Stats

Jason Bay was born on Wednesday, September 20, 1978, in Trail, British Columbia, Canada. Bay was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 23, 2003, with the San Diego Padres. 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 Jason Bay baseball stats page.

"You walk around the locker room and see all of the (retired) jerseys hanging up and it's kind of amazing that it's never happened (a Pirate winning the Rookie of the Year). For a guy like me to come pretty much out of nowhere and do what I did means the world to me on a personal level. It's also unbelievable to share it with so many people because it is the first time and there are a lot more people who can enjoy this other than myself. I am extremely honored." - Jason Bay in Rookie of the Year Press Conference (11/09/2004)

During his rookie season, Jason Bay led all other rookies in home runs (26) and RBIs (26) - breaking the Pittsburgh Pirates record for homers in a season by a rookie (23), set originally in 1936 by Johnny Rizzo , then tied by Ralph Kiner in 1946. When the Baseball Writers' Association of America selected Bay as the Rookie of the Year , he became the first Pittsburgh Pirate to ever receive the honor, AND, the first Canadian -born player to win!

Did you know that only three Major League players, who were also born in Canada , have ever hit more home runs than Jason Bay? The top five: #5. Joey Votto (Active), #4. Jason Bay (222 HRs), #3. Justin Morneau (Active), #2. Matt Stairs (265 HRs), and #1. Larry Walker (383 HRs).
