Player Profile: Karl Best

I have nine cards of Karl Best. This one is from 1985 Fleer Update.

Playing career: Karl Best pitched five years in the major leagues for the Mariners and Twins. In 61 games, all in relief, he went 5-6 with 5 saves and a 4.04 ERA.

Where he is now: Owns K-Best Construction in Washington.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Karl Bes, between Karl Besel, an urban planning professor at Indiana University, and Karl Besas, who died in a boating accident in 2010. Another prominent Karl Best was a minor league umpire.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jim Beswick.
