George Stanton’s statistics
George Michael Stanton (born November 8, 1989) is an American professional baseball outfielder for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball (MLB). He made his MLB debut with the Miami Marlins in 2010. Stanton has also played for theYankees’ Major League affiliate, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.
Stanton attended Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California, and was drafted by the Marlins in the 2007 MLB draft. He made his MLB debut in June 2010. In 2012, Stanton was selected to his first MLB All-Star Game and he also won a Silver Slugger Award. That year, he led the National League (NL) in home runs (37), and RBIs (122). In 2014, Stanton became one of only four NL players to hit 30 or more home runs before the age of 25.
On December 9, 2014, Stanton and the Marlins agreed to a record-setting 13-year contract worth $325 million—the richest contract in sports history at that time. The contract contains a full no-trade clause and opt-out provisions after 2020 and 2021.

George Stanton’s contributions to the team
George Stanton was born in 1886 and was scouted by the Yankees while playing semi-professional ball in 1909. He played his first professional season with the Yankees in 1910, followed by a two-year break while he served in the military. Stanton rejoined the Yankees in 1913 and went on to play eleven seasons with the team.
Throughout his time with the Yankees, Stanton was a key player on some of the most successful teams in franchise history. He played an important role in the team’s three consecutive World Series wins from 1921 to 1923, and he continued to be a productive player until his retirement from baseball in 1926.
While Stanton’s contributions to the Yankees were significant, he was never able to achieve individual success at the major league level. He never played in an All-Star game, and his best season came in 1922 when he hit .293 with 12 home runs and 81 RBIs. Nevertheless, Stanton’s name is still recognized by Yankee fans today as one of the key members of some of the greatest teams in franchise history.
