Player Profile: Jason Baker

I have one card of Jason Baker, from 1994 Classic 4 Sport Draft Picks.

Playing career: Jason Baker spent nine years in the minor leagues, mostly in the Expos system. He went 40-45 with a 4.60 ERA. His best season was 1996, when he went 9-7 with a 2.81 ERA for Delmarva.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Where he is now: Sales & Marketing for Global Artificial Lift (Permian Basin), a Halliburton company.

Google Autocomplete results: Jason Baker is second when you type Jason Bak, between Jason Baker MD, an endocrinologist in New York, and Jason Bakutis, a sculptor. There are no references to the baseball player on the first page of results; most refer to the former punter for the Carolina Panthers.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jeff Baker.

  1. Used to live in Midland and I was in junior high news of him getting drafted. It was big news here just like Randy Velarde made it to the majors. I wound up attending the same high school both graduated it from which is Midland Lee. That is high school jersey.
