Player Profile: Allan Anderson

I have 27 cards of Allan Anderson. This one is from 1992 Stadium Club.

Playing Career: Allan Anderson pitched for the Minnesota Twins from 1986 to 1991. He was the American League ERA champ in 1988, with a 2.45 ERA to go with his 16-9 record. The next year he led the team in wins, going 17-10.

Where he is now: He now runs AA Sports, an indoor sports facility and baseball/softball clinic in Ohio.

My memories: I remember being excited that the Yankees signed him as a free agent in 1992. Unfortunately he got hurt and never got to pitch for them.

Interesting stories: In October of 2009 he shared with me his thoughts on baseball cards.

Google Autocomplete results: He is sixth when you type Allan Ande, between Allen Andersson, once-wealthy American backer of deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, and Allan Andes, a Colorado financial advisor. Another prominent Allan Anderson is a poet from Barbados.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brady Anderson.
