Dick McAuliffe Stats

Dick McAuliffe was born on Wednesday, November 29, 1939, in Hartford, Connecticut. McAuliffe was 20 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 17, 1960, with the Detroit Tigers. 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 Dick McAuliffe baseball stats page.

Major League Debut ] was in Detroit, in a game that I pinch-hit for the pitcher, and we were way behind. He walked me on four straight pitches, and there was one out at the time, and we were behind by a lot of runs, and no chance of winning the ballgame. So I get on first base, and there's one out, and all I want to do is don't make any mistakes out on the basepaths. So Coot Veal got up, and hits a real soft line drive to shortstop, and I don't know what made me do it – I guess the excitement that I was in the big leagues and all the people there and everything combined – and I just broke for second base ... and I got doubled off first base. So it wasn't a very good impression." - Dick McAuliffe (John Cizik, SABR Baseball Biography, Dick McAuliffe , Source )
