Player Profile: Gary Beare

I have one card of Gary Beare, from 1978 Topps.

Playing career: Gary Beare pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers in 1976 and 1977. In 23 games (11 starts) he went 5-6 with a 5.15 ERA. A fuller account of his career can be found at Cardboard Gods.

Where he is now: Account Manager at the San Diego Union Tribune and a Varsity Pitching Coach at Westview High School.

My memories: He is from before my time. Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Gary Beare, ahead of Gary Linker Torch Bearer, a UK soccer player who carried the Olympic torch. There do not appear to be any other prominent Gary Beares.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Kevin Bearse.
