Player Profile: Chuck Abbott

I have two cards of Chuck Abbott. This one is from 1999 SP Top Prospects.

Playing Career: Middle infielder Chuck Abbott played six seasons in the Angels and Indians organizations from 1996-2001, making it as high as AAA before an elbow injury ended his career.

My Memories: I had not heard of him except for his baseball cards.

Post-Playing Career: Abbott teaches physical education and drivers education at Hoffman Estates High School in Illinois, is an inclusion aide at the Northwest Special Recreation Association, and is Assistant Baseball Coach at Professional Sports Performance.

Google Autocomplete Ranking: Chuck Abbott is fourth when you type in Chuck Ab, between actor Chuck Aber and artist Chuck Abraham. Another prominent Chuck Abbott is a longtime Disneyland employee who was the foreman at both Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain.

Coming up next: Tomorrow's profile will be Glenn Abbott.
