Player Profile: Tommy Barrett

I have five cards of Tommy Barrett. This one is from 1989 ProCards.

Playing career: Second baseman Tommy Barrett played in 50 games for the Phillies and 4 for the Red Sox. He hit .202 with 0 HR and 4 RBI.

My memories: I first heard of him as a minor leaguer after the 1986 season when the Yankees traded him to the Phillies with Mike Easler for Charlie Hudson. I thought it was cool that the Yankees had the brother of a star (Marty Barrett was at his most prominent with Boston) and was a little disappointed to see him go.

Where he is now: Anyone know where Tommy Barrett is now?

Google Autocomplete results: He is eighth when you type Tommy Bar, between Tommy Barban, a character in the book Tender is the Night, and Tommy Barbarella, a keyboardist in Prince’s band. Another prominent Tommy Barrett is a NASCAR driver.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Francisco Barrios.
