Player Profile: Brian Barden

I have four cards of Brian Barden. This one is from 2007 Ultra.

Playing career: Infielder Brian Barden played for the Diamondbacks, Cardinals and Marlins from 2007 to 2010. In 193 at bats, he hit .211 with 4 HR and 14 RBI.

Where he is now: Last season he played in Japan, though his season ended with surgery. You can follow his progress on his wife’s blog. He's back in the US in 2013, playing at the Dodgers AAA club in Albuquerque, hitting .231 with 1 HR and 11 RBI in 45 games.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Brian Bard, ahead of Brian Bardell, Director of Volunteers of America. Another prominent Brian Barden is a surfboard artist.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jeremy Barfield.
