Player Profile: Rich Becker

I have 22 cards of Rich Becker. This one is from 2001 Topps.

Playing career: Outfielder Rich Becker spent eight years in the major leagues. He could hit for a little bit of power and had a little bit of speed but struck out a ton. His first five seasons were all spent with the Twins. The last three seasons were divided up among the Mets, Orioles, Brewers, A’s and Tigers.

My memories: I remember him on those bad Twins teams in the mid-1990’s. I had forgotten about his time with all those other different teams.

Where he is now: A firefighter in North Fort Myers, FL.

Google Autocomplete Results: He is first when you type Rich Bec, ahead of Rich Beckert, Chief Financial Officer of CA Technologies. Another prominent Rich Becker is Managing of Development Communications for the Albany Medical Center.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Josh Beckett.
