Player Profile: Larry Bigbie

I have ten cards of Larry Bigbie. This one is from 2002 Topps.

Playing career: Outfielder Larry Bigbie played six seasons in the major leagues for the Orioles, Rockies and Cardinals. In 392 games he hit .267 with 31 HR and 137 RBI.

Interesting facts: After he was set up in a federal sting, Bigbie agreed to cooperated with the investigators of the Mitchell Report, confirming the steroid use of former Orioles teammates. The Orioles and Yankees were the two teams with the most players mentioned in the report commissioned by the part-owner of the Boston Red Sox.

Where he is now: Owns Bigbie’s Shore Performance baseball instruction facility in Centreville, MD.

My memories: I remember him vaguely as part of the mediocre Orioles teams of the early 00’s but nothing specific.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Larry Big, ahead of Larry Biggers, VP at MV Transportation. There do not appear to be any other prominent Larry Bigbies.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Craig Biggio.
