Player Profile: Brian Barton

I have three cards of Brian Barton. This one is from 2008 Topps. 

Playing career: Outfielder Brian Barton played in 82 games for the 2008 Cardinals, hitting .268 with 2 HR and 13 RBI. He also played in one game for the Braves in 2009.

Where he is now: He is now playing for the independent Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, hitting .284 with 1 HR and 19 RBI in 46 games. He founded the (XY)∞ Foundation (boys and girls times infinity) to expose inner city youth to travel, business ownership, public speaking and community action. He has recently written a motivational book called Mindset, and also has a blog where he discusses various political and intellectual topics.

My memories: Last year he kindly shared his thoughts on baseball cards with this blog.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Brian Bar, between Brian Barrett, Managing Editor of Gizmodo, and Brian Barbour Twitter, a UNC athletics blog. Another prominent Brian Barton is a Washington man who has been missing for eight years.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Daric Barton.
