Player Profile: Dan Boever

I have two cards of Dan Boever. This one is from 1989 Best. 

Playing career: Outfielder Dan Boever played seven seasons in the Reds, Indians and Mariners organizations, including parts of four seasons in AAA. In 667 games he hit .272 with 53 HR and 310 RBI.

Where he is now: Though he showed moderate power in his baseball career, he has shown tremendous power in another sport – golf. He makes his living as a long-drive champion and trick-shot entertainer. He has performed in over 1,000 exhibitions and has won many long-drive contests. The Golf Channel once did a half-hour special on Boever, and in 2006 he appeared in the movie Hoot.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Dan Boe, between Dan Boeckner Operators, referring to a Canadian singer and his band, and Dan Boe, a sales trainer in San Diego. There do not appear to be any other prominent Dan Boevers.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Joe Boever.
