Slash Stats by Birthday

We’ve done homers by birthday, and hits by birthday.  Might as well go whole hog and do slash stats.

Here are the composite homer, RBI and slash stats for each birthday. The homers and RBI are prorated to 502 plate appearances per player, and all stats are from 1954-2016.

In case you are wondering, 7/24’s numbers are quite gaudy due to one Barry Bonds.

  1. That sparkling May 6 batting average comes courtesy of Willie Mays, and to a lesser extent José Altuve.

    Dec. 24 is woefully short (!) on homers and RBIs mostly thanks to Frank Taveras.

    Sept. 8 has bad batting averages and OBP because of an unusually high proportion of pitchers: Gerrit Cole, Bobby Parnell, Gil Meche, Bob Wolcott, Mike Dyer, Don Aase, Ken Forsch, Steve Hargan. Only three position players from 9/8 have more than 500 career AB: Logan Schafer (625 AB, .214 BA/.292 OBP), Nick Hundley (2458 AB, .250/.303), and Mike Rivera (548 AB, .239/.302).

    Dec. 31 has low SLG and OPS numbers, again mostly because it’s the birthday of lots of pitchers and few position players. But to me, what’s fun is that the third- and fourth-highest career homer totals for this birthday belong to Tommy Byrne (1943-57) and Bobby Byrne (1907-17), respectively. Tommy, a fine-hitting pitcher, hit 14 homers in 601 career AB, while Bobby, a Deadball Era second baseman, hit 10 homers in 4,831 career AB. They are two of three “Byrne”s ever to play in the majors.
