Player Profile: Bill Blount

I have one card of Bill Blount, from 1988 Riverside Red Wave.

Playing career: Bill Blount pitched in the Padres organization from 1985 to 1988. In 143 games he went 17-18 with 32 saves and a 3.69 ERA.

Where he is now: A detective in the LAPD’s Hollenbeck station.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Bill Blo, between Bill Bloom, EVP, Operations & Technology at The Hartford, and Bill Blodgett, Founder & President of Majesty Outdoors. There are no entries for the ballplayer on the first page of google results; most refer to an Alabama politician convicted of bribery charges.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Billy Blythe.
