Player Profile: Jerry Augustine

I have thirteen Jerry Augustine cards. This one is from 1980 Topps.

Playing career: Jerry Augustine pitched ten seasons for the Brewers, from 1975 to 1984. He started his career as a starter before switching to relief in 1979. A full description of his career can be found on the 1980Topps Blog.

Where he is now: For many years he was the head baseball coach at UW-Milwaukee, winning 315 games. He is now an analyst for Fox Sports Wisconsin and an insurance agent for American Family Insurance in West Allis, WI.

My memories: Before my time. Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Jerry Au, between Jerry Audley, a country musician, and Jerry Aurum, a photographer. Another prominent Jerry Augustine is the owner of No Leak Roofing in Connecticut.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Doug Ault.
