Player Profile: Danny Bautista

I have 20 cards of Danny Bautista. This one is from 2005 Topps.

Playing career: Outfielder Danny Bautista played twelve years in the major leagues for the Tigers, Braves, Marlins and Diamondbacks. In 895 games he hit .272 with 62 HR and 319 RBI.

My memories: I was aware of him when he came up with Detroit, but lost track of him after he moved to the National League. When he faced the Yankees in the 2001 World Series I had forgotten all about him. Unfortunately he had great success against the Yankees, hitting over .500 in the series.

Interesting facts: His stepfather, Jesus de la Rosa, played for the Astros in 1975.

Where he is now: Anyone know where Danny Bautista is now?

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Danny Bau, ahead of Danny Baudoin Baseball, referring to a pitcher at Horace Mann High School in New York. There do not appear to be any other prominent Danny Bautistas.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Denny Bautista.
