Bob Lemon Stats

Bob Lemon was born on Wednesday, September 22, 1920, in San Bernardino, California. Lemon was 20 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 9, 1941, with the Cleveland Indians. 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 Bob Lemon baseball stats page.

"Bob Lemon was one of the best hitting pitchers, as he first came up to the big leagues as an infielder/outfielder. However, his pitching stints in Hawaii during World War II kept his pitching arm in shape and helped him get noticed as a pitcher." - Bob Feller in the Little Black Book of Baseball Wisdom (2001)
