Bruno Haas Stats

Bruno Haas was born on Tuesday, May 5, 1891, in Worcester, Massachusetts. Haas was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues on June 23, 1915, with the Philadelphia Athletics. 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 Bruno Haas baseball stats page.

"We were saddened to learn this week of the death of Bruno Haas over in Sarasota. Mr. Haas was a former major and minor league ball player and at the time of his death a scout for the Philadelphia Athletics. His entry into the majors left its mark on American loop records in a unique fashion. This writer got acquainted with him while he was scouting the state semi-pro tournament here last year and he recalled how back in 1915 he got his first crack at the majors with the A's. The first day he was called up he took the mound and gave up 16 walks and oddly enough was left in during the entire game. Rookie Bruno Haas broke the records with his huge number of bases on balls but didn't stay long with Philadelphia after that performance. But in 1916 he went to the Chicago White Sox and was with the organization for four years. His life was baseball and baseball has been his life like so many grand guys you meet in and around the playing field ." - Sportswriter Bob Enns in The News Tribune ("Sports Whirl". Ft. Pierce, Florida. June 9, 1952. Page 5)

Did you know that when Bruno Haas made his Major League debut on June 23, 1915, he set a new American League record for walks allowed in a game ? The sixteen bases on balls were not only an American League mark - that still stands, but it tied the National League record of sixteen set by Bill George on May 30, 1887, then tied by George Van Haltren on June 27, 1887.

Bruno Haas pitched in five more games, played left field in three games, and pinch hit in three games before he was sent back down to the Minor Leagues. Bruno not only played baseball for twenty-plus years in the minors, he also played football in the National Football League ( Baseball and Football Players List / NFL.com Stats ).

On May 5, 1901, Roy Patterson became the first American League pitcher to face fifty-plus batters in a nine inning game (57). Bruno Haas was the third pitcher in this infamous club, facing fifty-three in his record setting walks-surrendered game. Only two additional junior circuit pitchers are also members, Allan Travers who faced fifty-two batters on May 18, 1912, and Hod Lisenbee who faced fifty-one batters on September 11, 1936 .
