Player Profile: Bill Bonham

I have six cards of Bill Bonham. This one is from 1978 Topps. 

Playing career: Bill Bonham pitched for the Cubs and Reds from 1971 to 1980. In 300 games (214 starts) he went 75-83 with a 4.01 ERA. A prototypical member of the bad Cubs teams of the 1970s, Bonham led the NL with 22 losses in 1974 and 120 earned runs allowed in 1975.

My memories: Before my time. Only know him from his card.

Where he is now: Anyone know where Bill Bonham is now?

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Bill Bonh, ahead of Bill Bonin Serial Killer, referring to Los Angeles’s “Freeway Killer”. Another prominent Bill Bonham is a musician.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Emilio Bonifacio.
