Player profile: Jeff Abbott

I have two cards of Jeff Abbott. This one is from 2001 Upper Deck.

Playing career: Jeff Abbott played five seasons for the White Sox and Marlins from 1997 to 2001. His best season was 2000, when he was the fourth outfielder for the AL West Champion White Sox. He got one at bat in the ALDS.

Personal memories: Don't really remember him.

Where is he now: Couldn't find him - any readers know?

Google Autocomplete results: Jeff Abbott is the first result when you type in Jeff Ab, ahead of impressionsist Jeff Brandt. Jeff Abbott the ballplayer is actually only the sixth result when you Google him; the first five links are for a "National Bestselling Author of Panic and Fear."

Coming up next: Tomorrow's profile will be Jim Abbott.

  1. I always liked Jeff Abbott. I remember him more from playing at the University of Kentucky. The Wildcats had several great teams in the late 90s-early 2000s which included several first round busts. But they were great in college.
