Player Profile: Blaine Beatty

I have seven cards of Blaine Beatty. This one is from 1989 ProCards.

Playing career: Blaine Beatty pitched eleven seasons of professional baseball, making the major leagues with the Mets in 1989 and 1991. He put up excellent numbers in both the minors (121-69, 3.26 ERA) and majors (2.25 ERA in 16 innings) but constant struggles with injuries prevented him from achieving more. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Amazing Shea Stadium Autograph Project.

Where he is now: A minor league pitching coach in the Orioles organization.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Blaine Be, between Blaine Bell, a scientist, and Blaine Beach, a park in Minnesota. Another prominent Blaine Beatty is a realtor in Minnesota.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Kash Beauchamp.
