Player Profile: Jason Bates

I have eleven cards of Jason Bates. This one is from 1993 Classic Best.

Playing career: Second baseman Jason Bates played four seasons in the major leagues for the Colorado Rockies. His best season was his rookie year of 1995, when he hit .267 with 8 HR and 46 RBI, helping the team make its first every playoff appearance. A fuller account of his career can be found at the bdj610 Topps Baseball Card Blog.

Where he is now: A realtor at Weichert Colorado and an instructor at HitStreak Baseball Training.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Jason Bates, ahead of Jason Bates Actor, which is a reference to Jason Bateman. Another prominent Jason Bates is Professor of Medicine at the University of Vermont.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Bill Bathe.
