Player Profile: Bobby Bonds Jr.

I have one card of Bobby Bonds Jr., from 1993 Classic Draft. 

Playing career: The son of Bobby and brother of Barry, outfielder Bobby Bonds Jr. played in the Padres and Giants organizations from 1992 to 1998. In 586 games he hit .250 with 38 HR, 218 RBI and 133 SB. A fuller account of his career can be found at Bleedin’ Brown and Gold.

Where he is now:  A hitting instructor at BB Grand Slam in South Plainfield, NJ.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Bobby Bond, between Bobby Bonds Stats and Bobby Bonds Hall of Fame, both of which refer to his father. There do not appear to be any other prominent Bobby Bonds Jrs.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Ricky Bones.
