Damion Easley Stats

Damion Easley was born on Tuesday, November 11, 1969, in New York, New York. Easley was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 13, 1992, with the California Angels. 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 Damion Easley baseball stats page.

"To Buddy Bell , the Tigers ' manager, Easley has become the premier second baseman in the American League. Better than the Orioles ' Roberto Alomar . Better than the Yankees ' Chuck Knoblauch . Bell says plainly that Easley should be voted the starting second baseman in the All-Star Game. 'There are some good second basemen, Alomar , Knoblauch , but I wouldn't take either one of them for this guy,' Bell said. 'I think he feels like he's one of the best players in the league - at least at second base.' Easley does not have the brute strength and size of Mark McGwire or Ken Griffey Jr. By athletes' standards, he is a little guy, 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds. And he is quite quiet. He responds with modesty to his manager's praise. 'I don't concern myself with being one of the best,' Easley said. 'I concern myself with being the best I can be. I'm not concerned with the glamor of being one of the best. I believe things come with a lot of hard work and believing in your own ability. Those things come naturally, just by producing.'" - Staff Writer Jerry Green (The Seattle Times, 06/07/1998, 'Easley's Career In Gear Since Move To Detroit', Source )

Interleague play was first introduced in the 1997 Major League Baseball season. Prior to that, matchups between American League (AL) teams and National League (NL) teams only occurred during Spring Training, exhibition games, and the World Series. Why did we put a brief history of interleague play on Damion Easley's page? [ Cycles In Interleague Games ]

On June 10, 1998 , Dante Bichette , playing for the Colorado Rockies (NL), hit for the cycle in an interleague game at Coors Field, versus the Texas Rangers (AL) - the first National League player to hit for the cycle in an Interleague Game .

On June 8, 2001 , Damion Easley, playing for the Detroit Tigers (AL), hit for the cycle in an interleague game at Comerica Park, versus the Milwaukee Brewers (NL) - the first American League player to hit for the cycle in an Interleague Game .

Did you know that Damion Easley - a second baseman with power, speed, and defensive skills - displayed those assets in 1997, putting together a 20-20 season (20 home runs and 20 stolen bases), only the fourth Detroit Tiger with a 20-20 year? Tigers who came before Easley were: Kirk Gibson (1984-1987), Alan Trammell (1986-1987) and Chad Curtis (1995). One year later, Damion "only" stole fifteen bases, but he hit a career high twenty-seven home runs, led all American League second basemen in fielding percentage, and hit .271 - good enough to earn him the Silver Slugger Award (only Lou Whitaker had won at that position before Damion, with Detroit ).

Damion Easley, 6 Hits in 1 Game
Damion Easley 6-Hit Game ( Box Score ) | The Santa Cruz Sentinel | August 9, 2001
Damion Easley was the fourth Detroit Tiger to record Six Hits in One 9-Inning Game ( August 8, 2001 ), joining Doc Nance (July 13, 1901), Ty Cobb ( May 5, 1925 ), and George Kell ( September 20, 1946 ). On May 31, 1999 , Easley tied another old team-specific record when he was plunked three times in the same game, the previous instance occurring on August 16, 1968 , by Bill Freehan . When Damion was drilled three times again, on July 16, 2002 , he became the first and only Tiger hit three times in a game more than once.
