American baseball outfielder, nicknamed "Squeaky", who had an outstanding minor league career, notching a .318 career batting average and 1,627 hits in 1,439 games played over eleven full seasons (1950–1960). He made All-Star teams in the Florida State League in 1950 and the Tri-State League in 1952, when he won the batting title with the Charlotte Hornets, and he helped his teams win league championships in his first three seasons of professional baseball. However, his major league career was simply a Cup of coffee during a late September call-up with the 1953 Washington Senators.

Barmes batted left-handed, threw right-handed, stood 5 feet 8 inches (1.73 m) tall and weighed 165 pounds (75 kg). His MLB debut came when he replaced Jackie Jensen as Washington's right fielder in the first game of a doubleheader at Griffith Stadium against the Detroit Tigers on 13 September 1953. He handled two chances in the field without an error and grounded out to second baseman Fred Hatfield against Ned Garver in his only at bat. Barmes' other four MLB appearances came as a pinch hitter. He earned his only MLB hit with a pinch single off Bob Trice of the Philadelphia Athletics on 26 September.

Bruce Barmes was the uncle of MLB infielder Clint Barmes. He died on 25 January 2014, aged 84, in Garner, North Carolina.
