James William Lindeman is a former Major League Baseball player. He played mostly in the outfield and at first base, appearing in parts of nine seasons in the majors from 1986 until 1994.

Professional career[edit]

He was the St. Louis Cardinals' first-round draft pick in the 1983 Major League Baseball Draft out of Bradley University. In 1986, he led the AAA Louisville Redbirds with 82 runs, 38 doubles, 20 home runs, and a league-leading 96 RBIs.[1] He made his major league debut with the Cardinals in 1986, and played with them through the 1989 season. He saw the most playing time of his major league career in 1987, setting career highs in games played (75), at bats (207), hits (43), home runs (8) and RBI (28).

Over the next five seasons he played for four different teams, never playing in more than 75 games in a season in his career. His final professional season was spent with the minor league Oklahoma City 89ers, a Texas Rangers farm team, in 1995.
