Player Profile: Cory Bailey

I have four cards of Cory Bailey. This one is from 1995 Score.

Playing career: Cory Bailey pitched in 172 major league games, all in relief, between 1993 and 2002 for the Red Sox, Cardinals, Giants and Royals. He went 9-10 with one save and a 3.96 ERA.

Interesting stories: After his US career, Bailey pitched in Taiwan. He was arrested in 2008 as part of a game-fixing scandal.

Where he is now: Bailey has returned to the US and is now co-owner of the Hit Repair baseball instruction facility in Marion, IL.

My memories: I remember his name but nothing specific.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Cory Bai, ahead of Cory Baird Kirkland, referring to a private equity associate at Chicago Law firm Kirkland & Ellis. Another prominent Cory Bailey is the Head Football Coach at Assumption College.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Howard Bailey.
