Player Profile: Adam Bernero

I have one card of Adam Bernero, from 2001 Victory.

Playing career: Adam Bernero pitched for the Tigers, Rockies, Braves, Phillies and Royals from 2000 to 2006. He was basically used as cannon fodder by bad teams in Detroit and Colorado. His career numbers are pretty bad – 11-27, 5.91 ERA. He went 1-14 in 2003 with Detroit and Colorado. The one year he had a winning record (2006 Braves), he still had a 6.51 ERA.

Where he is now: He is a fishing guide and youth baseballcoach in Bend, OR. He is also a photographer specializing in portrait and “boudoir” shots. His description on his website, Circle Change Photography, sounds pretty creepy: “I want to make sure you are comfortable with my work and personality before you get in front of the camera. If that feels good for both of us then we can schedule the shoot for a day that works for you… Most of the women you see on here so far have been friends and we have shared a bottle of wine before the shoot. It helps me get comfortable as much as it does them and its created a more relaxed mood. I understand getting somewhat unclothed is stressful so if a bottle of wine helps great!” So, basically he wants women to pay him to take naked pictures of them while they’re drunk. I wonder if the parents of the kids he coaches are aware of his photography business.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Adam Berne, between Adam Berner, a lawyer in New Jersey, and Adam Bernell Olson, a sex offender in Colorado. There do not appear to be any other prominent Adam Berneros.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Cesar Bernhardt.
