Jim Breazeale played four seasons in the majors and also hit 124 home runs during eleven years in the minors. Seven of his minor league seasons were spent with the Richmond Braves. He also played winter ball in the Venezuelan League, hitting only .163/?/.206 in 49 at-bats for the Tigres de Aragua; the bright spot was two home runs.
He hit 2 home runs on June 20, 1978 for the Chicago White Sox against the Seattle Mariners. Both homers were against Paul Mitchell. Breazeale started the game batting fifth and playing first base for the White Sox. His home runs were the only 2 runs for the White Sox; they lost the game 4-2.
After returning to the minor leagues in 1973, Breazeale learned to play catcher and became a slugger for the Richmond Braves of the International League, although he suffered a severe leg injury that hurt his career. He was eventually acquired by the White Sox in the minor league portion of the 1977 Rule V Draft but saw little action with the Pale Hose.
