Player Profile: Scott Bankhead

I have 55 cards of Scott Bankhead. This one is from 1991 Upper Deck.

Playing career: Scott Bankhead pitched for the Mariners, Reds, Red Sox and Yankees from from 1986 to 1995, going 57-48 with a 4.18 ERA. He looked like a budding star after the 1989 season, when he was 14-6 with a 3.34 ERA, but injuries limited him to just four games the next season and his career was never the same.

Where he is now: Owns the North Carolina Baseball Academy.

My memories: I remember him being on the Yankees for a very short time, when they were populating their bullpen with a bunch of random ex-starting pitchers from other teams like Rick Honeycutt.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type Scott Bank, between Scott Bank, a bank in Illinois, and Scott Banker, a sales manager at Comcast. Another prominent Scott Bankhead is a dentist in Massachusetts. 

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brian Banks.
