Player Profile: Boof Bonser

I have eight cards of Boof Bonser. This one is from 2002 Topps. 

Playing career: Boof Bonser pitched for the Twins, Red Sox and A’s from 2006 to 2010. In 111 games he went 19-25 with a 5.18 ERA.

Where he is now: He started the season in Taiwan, pitching for the 7-Eleven Lions, but recently returned to the US to pitch for the Atlantic League’s Bridgeport Bluefish.

Interesting facts: He was born John Bonser, but was known as Boof since he was a baby. He later legally changed his name to Boof.

My memories: I remember him because of his unusual name, but nothing really specific.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Boof, between Boof, a slang word for dumb or messed up, and Boofle, an online-gaming company. There do not appear to be any other prominent Boof Bonsers.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Chris Booker.
