Player Profile: Brent Brede

I have three cards of Brent Brede. This one is from 1999 Upper Deck.

Playing career: Outfielder Brent Brede played in 169 games for the Twins and Diamondbacks from 1996 to 1998. In 169 games he hit .251 with 5 HR and 40 RBI.

Where he is now: A seventh grade social studies teacher at Wesclin Middle School, and the Boys Basketball coach at Trenton High School, both in Wesclin, IL.

My memories: I don’t remember much, but I do remember hearing that his name is pronounced "Brady".

Google Autocomplete results: He is eighth when you type Brent Bre, between Brent Brennan Nebraska, Wide Receivers Coach at Oregon State, who did not follow that school’s head coach to the Cornhuskers, and Brent Brendan Sexton, referring to two actors from the TV show “The Killing”. There do not appear to be any other prominent Brent Bredes.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Fred Breining.
