Player Profile: Ronnie Allen

I have one card of Ronnie Allen, from 1991 Classic Best.

Playing career: The Phillies’ third round draft choice in 1991, Ronnie Allen spent four years in their organization, as well as another four games in the Astros chain in 1995. He was 23-23 in his professional career.

Where he is now: A freelance photographer in Seattle.

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

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Ronnie Al, between Ronnie Almani, President of, and Ronnie Alma, a graduate of North Babylon High School in New York. When you google Ronnie Allen you don’t get any entries for the ballplayer on the first page. Prominent Ronnie Allens include a singer and an English football (soccer) player.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Shane Andrews.

  1. Hmm... I never heard of him. The Phillies had another Ron Allen in their farm system in the late 1960s. He was Dick Allen's younger brother.
