Eddie Watt Stats

Eddie Watt was born on Friday, April 4, 1941, in Lamoni, Iowa. Watt was 25 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 12, 1966, with the Baltimore Orioles. 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 Eddie Watt baseball stats page.

"The low point of his career? The catcalls Watt received after surrendering a game-winning home run in the 1970 World Series . The Birds won the Series, four games to one, but fans wanted a sweep and felt Watt had blown it. For three years, until he was sold to the Philadelphia Phillies in 1973, Watt said he was booed routinely whenever he walked to the mound at Memorial Stadium. Crowds were unforgiving. 'It didn't bother me as much as it did my kids,' he said. 'They were small; they didn't understand.'" - By Mike Klingaman of The Baltimore Sun (05/01/2011, 'Catching up with former Orioles reliever Eddie Watt', Source )
