Notes: Barbee was one of the most feared hitters in the Pacific Coast League during a four-year stretch with the Portland Beavers (1928), Seattle Indians (1928-30) and Hollywood Stars (1930-31). In his first season with the Stars, the outfielder clobbered 41 home runs and aided Hollywood to their second-straight PCL championship. Barbee led the PCL in round-trippers in back-to-back seasons, highlighted by a 47-home run campaign in 1931. That same year he finished second in the league with 403 total bases. After his final season in the PCL, he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates and started 97 games in left field, the most playing time he would receive in his two-year major league career.
