Bernie James Stats

Bernie James was born on Saturday, September 2, 1905, in Angleton, Texas. James was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 24, 1929, with the Boston Braves. 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 Bernie James baseball stats page.

"I didn't get to play in that ( 1933 ) World Series against the Senators because I was a utility infielder. However, I can remember that check we got! It was worth $4800 - which wouldn't be worth anything now. The World Series kept us from being caught up in the Depression. It was a happy feeling. Any ballplayer that has been to the World Series is fortunate." - Bernie James in The San Antonio Express News (Staff Writer Harry Page, Bernie James Interview , 1988)
