Player Profile: Jim Boudreau

I have one card of Jim Boudreau, from 1984 TCMA.

Playing career: The son of Hall-of-Famer Lou Boudreau, Jim Boudreau pitched for five seasons in the Cubs and Orioles organizations. In 150 games he went 30-26 with 8 saves and a 3.57 ERA.

Where he is now: Manager of Staffing at Magid Glove & Safety and a baseball coach at Bo Jackson’s Elite Sports, both in Chicago.

My memories: He shared his thoughts on baseball cards with this blog earlier this year.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Jim Boud, ahead of Jim Boudreaux, a guard for the Patriots in the 1960s. The first entry when you google Jim Boudreau is not the ballplayer but a Financial Advisor at Edward Jones.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brad Bouras.
