Player Profile: Matt Anderson.

Another new card to my collection from the 1992 Classic Best set. Not to be confused with the former Tiger pitcher of the same name I recently profiled.

Playing career: Matt Anderson pitched in the Orioles organization from 1989 to 1994. In 115 games over six years he never progressed above A ball, due to both injuries and ineffectiveness. You can read a fuller account of his playing career at The Greatest 21 Days.

My memories: Never heard of him until I got his card.

Where he is now: Anyone know where Matt Anderson is now?

Google Autocomplete results: This Matt Anderson was born and raised in Ventura, CA. Matt Anderson Ventura is second when you type Matt Anderson Ve, between Matt Anderson Vegas, referring to a Minnesota man who disappeared and was found in Las Vegas claiming to be kidnapped, and Matt Anderson Vero Beach, referring to a boat upholsterer who lives in that Florida city.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Robert Andino.
