Player Profile: Bruce Billings

I have one card of Bruce Billings, from 2011 Bowman Draft Picks Chrome.

Playing career: Bruce Billings has pitched nine seasons of professional baseball, making the major leagues with one game with the 2011 Rockies, three games for the 2011 A’s and one game for the 2014 Yankees, going 0-0 with a  9.82 ERA.

Where he is now: Pitched at the Nationals’ AAA team at Syracuse in 2015, going 8-5 with a 3.63 ERA in 27 games.

My memories: I didn’t remember him as a Yankee at all. He pitched four innings in a 13-1 loss to the Angels on a Friday night in April, so I’m sure I missed that one.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Bruce Bil, between Bruce Bilger, a banker, and Bruce Billig, Director of the CUNY School of Education’s Office of Clinical Practice. Another prominent Bruce Billings is Associate Professor of Accounting at Florida State University.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Mick Billmeyer.
