A powerful persona in the sports field, Jim Palmer maintains a strong presence off the playing field as well as through a variety of business, charity and personal interests.  Regarded by news reporters and television broadcasters as the “perfect gentleman”, Jim personifies integrity, perseverance and excellence.

The most successful and best-known pitcher in Baltimore Orioles history, Jim was born October 14, 1945 in New York. He was adopted at birth and his adoptive father passed away when he was only nine years old. Shortly thereafter, his mother moved the family from New York to California.  In 1960 she remarried and the family moved to Scottsdale, Arizona where Jim attended high school.

He was a tremendous athlete in school and earned All-State honors in three different sports (baseball, football and basketball). On the diamond, he was a slugger with a .483 batting average. On the gridiron, he had a four- touchdown reception performance and on the hardwood, he averaged 25 points a game to lead the state of Arizona in scoring his senior year. Although offered a scholarship to UCLA to play basketball, Jim signed with the Baltimore Orioles in 1963 as a free agent.
