Player Profile: Jay Aldrich

I have four cards of Jay Aldrich. This one is from 1988 Topps.

Playing career: Jay Aldrich was a middling middle reliever for Milwaukee, Altanta and Baltimore from 1987 to 1990. In 65 games he was 6-5 with a 4.72 ERA. I suppose a testament to just how ineffective he was is that his Greatest 21 Days profile is all about home runs he gave up.

My memories: Just knew him from his 1987 Topps card.

Where he is now: I can’t find anything about his post-baseball career. Any of you readers know?

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Jay Ald, between Jay Aldous, Chief Strategist at Social Capital Partnerships, and Jay Aldridge, owner of Metro-Maintenance in Texas. Another prominent Jay Aldrich is a photographer in Nevada.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Doyle Alexander.
