Player Profile: Jeremy Blevins

I have one card of Jeremy Blevins, from 2000 Royal Rookies.

Playing career: Jeremy Blevins pitched eight seasons in the Angels and Yankees organizations. In 208 games he went 36-36 with a 4.06 ERA.

Interesting facts:There is a pitcher for the Nationals named Jerry Blevins. He usually gets a couple of Jeremy Blevins cards a year from autograph-seeking fans who confuse the two. He keeps the cards in his locker.

Where he is now: A millhand at Fluor Daniel.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is eighth when you type Jeremy Ble, between Jeremy Bleich MILB, referring to the Yankees prospect, and Jeremy Bleeker, President of Eastern Iowa Construction. Another prominent Jeremy Blevins was a runner who died of oral cancer last year.

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