Player Profile: Jeff Bittiger

I have five cards of Jeff Bittiger. This one is from 1989 Upper Deck.

Playing career: Jeff Bittiger pitched for the Phillies in 1986, the Twins in 1987, and the White Sox in 1988 and 1989. In 33 games he went 4-6 with a 4.77 ERA. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: An Oakland A’s scout and an instructor at the Lehigh Valley Baseball Academy.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Jeff Bit, between Jeff Bitsack, a director, and Jeff Bitsimis, a realtor. There do not appear to be any other prominent Jeff Bittigers.

Coming up next: The next profile will be George Bjorkman.
