1993 Studio Ellis Burks

Hobbies are building model cars and playing basketball: I wonder what kind of cars these were.

Favorite sports announcer is Dick Vitale: I guess he likes watching basketball, too.

Favorite players as a kid were Jim Rice and Bobby Bonds: Burks broke in with the Red Sox as a teammate of Jim Rice. Rice warned Burks of the racism in Boston and told him to “leave the city as fast as he could”.

Might have been a lawyer if he hadn’t been an athlete: Burks has not gone into the law field (and does not seem to have had legal troubles either).

Pet peeve is rudeness: Burks always had a reputation for a good personality.

Where he is now: Was an instructor for the Giants this spring training.
