Jim Gantner Stats

Jim Gantner was born on Monday, January 5, 1953, in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin. Gantner was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 3, 1976, with the Milwaukee Brewers. 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 Jim Gantner baseball stats page.

"To a man, the Brewers admire Gantner, an overachieving, hard-nosed, feisty competitor who motivated more talented teammates with his zest for the game. He was, in the vernacular, 'a gamer,' which is just about the highest compliment you can pay a baseball player." - Sportswriter Gary D'Amato in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (08/16/2002)
