Player Profile: Darren Blakely

I have three cards of Darren Blakely. This one is from 1999 Bowman International.

Playing career: Outfielder Darren Blakely played eight seasons in the Angels, Yankees, Padres and White Sox organizations. In 904 games he hit .247 with 115 HR and 456 RBI.

Where he is now: After his playing career ended he served in the United States Army as a Human Intelligence Collector including one tour in Afghanistan. Honorably discharged in 2014, he has started the Bucs Baseball Club in Tucson, AZ.

My memories: He shared his thoughts on baseball cards with this blog in 2014.

Google Autocomplete results: He is seventh when you type Darren Blak, between Darren Blake Carmax Jamaica, referring to a defendant in a fraud case involving that company in the Caribbean country, and Darren Blakely Omaha, referring to the CEO of Vendorin. Another prominent Darren Blakely is a member of Acrylic Concepts in Las Vegas.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Richard Bleier.
