Player Profile: Skeeter Barnes

I have 21 cards of Skeeter Barnes. This one is from 1985 Donruss.

Playing career: Utilityman Skeeter Barnes played parts of nine seasons in the major leagues for the Reds, Expos, Cardinals and Tigers. Primarily a bench player, his best season was 1991, when he hit .289 with 5 HR and 17 RBI in 75 games for the Tigers. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: Baserunning Coordinator for the Tampa BayRays.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Skeeter B, between Skeeter Beeter Pro, a hammock, and Skeeter Boat Parts, referring to a boat manufacturer. The first entry when you google Skeeter Barnes is not the ballplayer but a restaurant in Nebraska.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Darwin Barney.
