Player Profile: Bob Bennett

I have one card of Bob Bennett, from 1993 Front Row.

Playing career: Bob Bennett pitched six seasons in the Athletics organization. In 153 games, he went 36-31 with a 4.30 ERA.

Where he is now: Bennett was an active member of Native Americans at Dartmouth in his college days. After his playing career, he returned to his South Dakota hometown, becoming a sheriff at the Rosebud Reservation. He then progressed to the Rapid City Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Indian Affairs before landing his current role as an FBI Special Agent in 2003. He mostly handles cases involving healthcare and insurance fraud and civil rights investigations in situations where a police officer kills a crime suspect, but occasionally also works on cases involving bank robbers, kidnappers, fugitives, and terrorism. 

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type Bob Ben, between Bob Benson Mad Men, a TV character, and Bob Benjamin, a musician. There are no references to the ballplayer on the first page of results when you Google Bob Bennett; the first entry is for the former Senator from Utah.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Doug Bennett.
