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 Buzz Capra baseball stats page.

"(Buzz) Capra, 26, is a fidgety, craftsman who mixes off-speed breaking pitches with a sneaky fastball. A righthander, he dips so low off the mound that he seems to deliver the ball from the vicinity of his kneecaps." - Columnist Ray Kennedy in Sports Illustrated (July 8, 1974)
