Player Profile: Jose Bautista

I have 22 cards of Jose Bautista. This one is from 1994 Score.

Playing career: Jose Bautista pitched nine years in the major leagues for the Orioles, Cubs, Giants, Tigers and Cardinals. His best season was 1993 when he went 10-3 with a 2.82 ERA for the Cubs.

Where he is now: Pitching coach for the Kannapolis Intimidators in the White Sox organization.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Interesting facts: Bautista is an observant Jew who did not play on the High Holy Days. His maternal grandfather was an emigrant to the Dominican Republic escaping Nazi persecution during the Holocaust. Bautista later married an Israeli emigrant to Venezuela and has expressed a desire to build a synagogue in the Dominican Republic.

Google Autocomplete results: Jose Bautista Pitching Coach is seventh when you type Jose Bautista P, between Jose Bautista Pirates Stats and Jose Bautista Prancersise, both of which refer to the current outfielder of the same name.

Coming up next: The next profile will be the outfielder Jose Bautista.
