Player Profile: James Baldwin III

I have one card of James Baldwin III, from 2011 Topps Pro Debut.

Playing career: The Dodgers fourth round draft choice in 2010, James Baldwin III has advanced slowly through the team’s minor league system. His biggest asset is his speed. In 2012 he played at Class-A Great Lakes, hitting .209 with 7 HR, 40 RBI and 53 SB.

Where he is now: He is back at Great Lakes for 2013, hitting .224 with 3 HR, 9 RBI and only one stolen base.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Interesting facts: Son of former White Sox pitcher James Baldwin Jr.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type James Baldwin I, between James Baldwin in Paris and James Baldwin in France, both of which refer to the writer. There do not appear to be any other prominent James Baldwin III’s.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Kirk Baldwin.
