Player Profile: Ian Bladergroen

I have two cards of Ian Bladergroen. This one is from 2005 Topps.

Playing career: First baseman Ian Bladergroen played five seasons in the Mets, Red Sox and Mariners organizations, never getting above A ball. In 428 games he hit .272 with 44 HR and 258 RBI. A fuller account of his career can be found at Smed’s Baseball Card Blog.

Where he is now: A firefighter in the Savannah, GA fire department and assistant varsity baseball coach at Richmond Hill High School.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Ian Blad, between Ian Blades, Managing Consultant at Vertical Appointments, and Ian Bladen, Voice Operations Manager at Citi. There do not appear to be any other prominent Ian Bladergroens.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Carson Blair.
