Jim Palmer Bio

Jim Palmer, was a right-handed starting pitcher who played his entire career for the Baltimore Orioles (1965-1984). He is considered one of the best pitchers in Orioles history. He was a mainstay in the rotation during Baltimore's six pennant winning teams between the 1960s and 1980s.

In 1966 Palmer joined the starting rotation. Baltimore rolled to the pennant, behind Frank Robinson's MVP season. Palmer won his final game against the Oakland Athletics to clinch the American League pennant. That October 6, he became the youngest pitcher (20 years, 11 months) to win a complete-game, World Series shutout, defeating Sandy Koufax and the Dodgers in Game 2, and the Orioles went on to sweep the series.

The next five years would see two more championships as the Orioles took their place among the great teams of all-time. Palmer won 21 games in 1972, and went 22-9, 158, 2.40 in 1973, walking off with his first Cy Young Award.

In a 19-year career, Palmer compiled a 268-152 record with 2212 strikeouts, a 2.86 ERA, 521 games started, 211 complete games, and 53 shutouts in 3948 innings, finishing his career without allowing a grand slam.

Palmer has spent much of his post playing career broadcasting Orioles games.
