Player profile: Shon Ashley

I have one card of Shon Ashley, from 1991 Line Drive.

Playing career: Outfielder Shon Ron Ashley (his real full name) played in the Brewers organization from 1985 to 1991. In 1991 he had a phenomenal season at AA El Paso, hitting .308 with 24 HR and 100 RBI. However, he was let go by the Brewers after the season, and after 58 games at AAA Indianapolis in the Expos organization in 1992, he quit, something he vowed todo for his wife if it became clear he had no shot at the major leagues.

Where is he now: Owns Ashley Glass in Idaho.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Shon As, ahead of Sean Astin, the star of Goonies and Rudy. There do not appear to be any other prominent Shon Ashleys.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Doyle Balthazar.
