Player Profile: Bob Blankenship

I have one card of Bob Blankenship, from 1989 ProCards.

Playing career: Bob Blankenship pitched for two seasons in the Reds organization. In his second season, at Class-A Bend, he went 2-4 with 12 saves and a 1.36 ERA in 27 games, but never pitched again. I assume injury but couldn’t find anything online to confirm.

Where he is now: Does youth baseball coaching in California.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is seventh when you type Bob Blan, between Bob Bland Brooklyn Royalty, referring to a fashion designer, and Bob Blanton, an athletic trainer in Virginia. There are no references to the ballplayer on the first page of Google results; the first entry is for a chemistry professor at Washington University.

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