Player Profile: Howard Bailey

I have four cards of Howard Bailey. This one is from 1984 Topps.

Playing career: Howard Bailey pitched in 50 games, mostly relief, for Detroit from 1981 to 1983, going 6-9 with one save and a 5.23 ERA.

Where he is now: After his baseball career, he turned to skeet shooting, and had a very successful career, winning 11 Michigan state championships and two world championships. Last year he was inducted into theMichigan Skeet Association Hall of Fame. In addition to his day job at Buy-Right Tape, he owns a blueberry farm and is a beekeeper.

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

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Howard Bai, ahead of Howard Baier, an Investment Banking Analyst at JP Morgan. The first result when you google Howard Bailey is not the ballplayer but a financial planning firm called Howard Bailey Financial.

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