Player Profile: Richie Barker

I have one card of Richie Barker, from 1999 Fleer Tradition Update.

Playing career: Richie Barker pitched in five games for the 1999 Cubs. In five innings, he allowed four runs on six hits, striking out three and walking four.

Where he is now: He does some youth baseball coaching, but his primary job is as a Keller Williams realtor in Arizona.

My memories: A couple of years ago I emailed him about his baseball card experiences, but he replied that he had no stories and nothing to share.

Google Autocomplete results: He is eighth when you type Richie Bar, between Richie Barker, Manager, an English football manager, and Richie Barnett Barberton, a recently deceased auto-worker who lived in Barberton, OH. 

Coming up next: The next profile will be Tim Barker.
