Jim Barr

1979 Topps

Barr pitched for 12 seasons, almost all of them with the San Francisco Giants, from 1971-1983. He won 101 games in the major leagues, finishing with a career ERA of 3.56. His best season was 1976 when he won 15 games with a 2.89 ERA for San Francisco. Barr was not much of a strikeout artist. His career K/9 was just 3.2. The lack of swings and misses did not prevent him from winning 10 or more games six times in his career. In addition to pitching for the Giants, Barr spent two seasons with the California Angels. Following his career in the big leagues, Barr was the pitching coach at Sacramento State University.
