Player Profile: Pat Ahearne

I have one card of Pat Ahearne, from 1995 Topps Traded.

Playing career: Pat Ahearne has been pitching professionally since 1992. He made the major leagues with the Detroit Tigers in 1995.

Where he is now: A player/coach for Draci Brno, the leading Czech baseball team. At the end of May he was 3-1 with a 0.36 ERA.

My memories: Was not aware of him outside of baseball cards.

Interesting stories: In 2009 he shared with me some great stories about baseball cards. He is also a baseball instructor and a photographer, and has his own blog, The Way of Baseball.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Pat Ah, between Pat Ahumada, the former mayor of Brownsville, TX, and Pat Ahern Chicago, referring to the CEO of Rainbow Hospice & Palliative Care. There do not appear to be any other prominent Pat Ahearnes.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Willie Aikens.
