Dennis Bennett Stats

Dennis Bennett was born on Thursday, October 5, 1939, in Oakland, California. Bennett was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 12, 1962, 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 Dennis Bennett baseball stats page.

"'There's no way they can stop me from winning 20 games,' he said flatly before the season started. 'I just might make it 23 wins, to match my uniform number.' There you hear the voice of an ex-bronco rider, ex-forest fighter, and ex-dance hall fighter who breezes through ball games the way he breezes through life. Bennett is a warm, easy-talking, confident guy who has all the things top pitchers are supposed to have. This includes two different kinds of curve balls, a fast ball that is much sneakier than most people think, a good slider and change up, and control that is better than good." - Columnist Ron Smith in Baseball Digest (September 1964 Issue, 'Mr. Lucky also known as The Tough Guy: Phils' Dennis Bennett answers to both', Page 43)
