Biographical Information[edit]

Ordinarily a fourth or fifth outfielder in parts of six big league seasons, Wes Chamberlain was pressed into duty in the 1993 NLCS by the Philadelphia Phillies and reacted splendidly, batting .364/.385/.636 in 11 at bats with 3 doubles and an RBI as the Phils marched to the National League pennant. His finest big league regular season was easily that season, batting .282/.320/.493 with 12 home runs and 20 doubles in 96 games.

Wes was originally Pittsburgh Pirates property, winning MVP honors in the Eastern League in 1989 with a .308/.346/.507 batting line with 21 home runs for the Harrisburg Senators. He moved to the Phils towards the end of 1990 and made his big league debut with them, hanging around until 1994. He finished his big league time with the Boston Red Sox in 1995. He later played a season for the Chiba Lotte Marines and was a fixture with the Winnipeg Goldeyes of the Northern League for several years.
