Kerry Dineen Stats

Kerry Dineen was born on Tuesday, July 1, 1952, in Englewood, New Jersey. Dineen was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on June 14, 1975, with the New York Yankees. 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 Kerry Dineen baseball stats page.

"Young Kerry was called up in the midst of the Yanks' outfield crisis last June. He broke into the line-up, and hit a robust .364 in his first- and last-7 games. After a base-hit in a game at Detroit on 6/19, he pulled a hamstring muscle and was returned to Syracuse to recuperate. Made 348 triples to the plate for the Chiefs, and hit .241 with 30 RBI. He's not a classy outfielder, but he makes the plays and has a good arm." - 1975 SSPC Baseball Card (Back of Card #452. Baseball Almanac Collection)
