1993 Studio Jay Buhner

Hobbies are hunting and fishing: Buhner is well known for his fishing exploits.

Favorite sports announcer is Bob Uecker: Nice pick, especially as Buhner was never a Brewer.

Favorite player as a kid was Willie Stargell: Buhner was originally drafted by the Pirates, and Buhner was coached by Stargell in the minor leagues there.

Most prized possession is his ¾-ton 4x4 Suburban: Sports Illustrated’s 1996 profile of Buhner begins with him knocking the mirror of a car with his Suburban and driving away.

Might have been a game warden if he hadn’t been an athlete: Makes sense with the hunting and fishing.

Where he is now: Buhner is available for corporate appearances and autograph signings.
