Player Notes:   Inducted into Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame in 2006
This page contains detailed statisics (mostly) not available on the basic profile page. The data here is limited to the Major League and digs a bit deeper into the events that occured on the field. Its important to note that this is not an "advanced stats" section for analytics and metrics. It is a summary of statistics that are more difficult to find on other sites and are related to play level events.
Not all column headers are intuitive. Hover over the description to see the definition or scroll to the bottom of the page to see the written definition.
