Player Profile: Michael Billek

I have two cards of Michael Billek. This one is from 2005 Bowman Draft Picks.

Playing career: Michael Billek pitched in the Cubs organization from 2005 to 2007. In 48 games he went 9-11 with a 6.14 ERA.

Where he is now: He is a firefighter/paramedic for Tampa Fire Rescue. A third-generation firefighter (his grandfather was NYFD), he is on the board of the Captain Billek Foundation in memory of his father, who died of melanoma.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: There are no autocomplete results. Another prominent Michael Billek is a security manager at a nightclub in Maryland.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Bruce Billings.
