Player Profile: Doug Bennett

I have one card of Doug Bennett, from 1991 Stadium Club Dome.

Playing career: Doug Bennett was the fifth round draft pick of the Dodgers in 1991, and his career started out with great promise. In 16 minor league games (14 starts), he went 5-5 with a 3.22 ERA. However, shoulder injuries ended his career in 1992 and he never pitched professionally again.

Where he is now: Sales Specialist at pest control company Presto-X in Springfield, MO.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Doug Benn, ahead of Doug Bennett QBE, referring to the company’s head of Program Business. There are no references to the ballplayer on the first page of results when you Google Doug Bennett; the first entry is for the singer of a band called Doug and the Slugs.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Gary Bennett.
