Player Profile: Joe Boever

I have 39 cards of Joe Boever. This one is from 1993 Donruss.

Playing career: Joe Boever made 516 appearances, all in relief, seven teams over twelve seasons in the major leagues, winning 34 games and saving 49. Highlights include 21 saves for the 1989 Braves, a league leading 81 appearances (and a 2.51 ERA in 111.1 innings) for the 1992 Astros, and a 9-2 record for the 1994 Tigers.

Where he is now: A realtor and baseball instructor in Tennessee. One of his teams made the Little League World Series last year.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Joe Boe, between Joe Boehm, a banker in Cleveland, and Joe Boek, a woodcarver in Woodstock, NY. Another prominent Joe Boever is an MMA fighter.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Tim Bogar.
