Player Profile: Brett Backlund

I have one card of Brett Backlund, from 1994 Upper Deck Minors.

Playing career: Brett Backlund pitched in the Pirates and Diamondbacks organizations from 1992 to 1997, going 37-42 with a 4.26 ERA. In his first season he reached AAA Buffalo where he went 3-0 with a 2.16 ERA in four starts. He never reached the major leagues or put together comparable minor league numbers again.

Where he is now: A CPA in Gilbert, Arizona, he is also the 10U Manager of the AZ Xtreme Baseball Club.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Brett Back, between Brett Backus, Account Representative at CoStar Group, and Brett Backues CPA, an accountant in Issaquah, WA. There do not appear to be any other prominent Brett Backlunds.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Wally Backman.
