Player Profile: Darin Blood

I have one card of Darin Blood, from 1997 Topps. Topps spelled his name wrong on the card.

Playing career: Darin Blood pitched in the Giants and Orioles organizations from 1995 to 2000. His best season was 1996, when he went 17-6 with a 2.65 ERA for Class-A San Jose. Overall in 112 games he went 38-32 with a 4.03 ERA.

Where he is now: Working as an instructor at Premier Sports Center and an Executive Pastor at Real Life Ministries, both in Post Falls, ID.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Darin Bl, ahead of Darin Blackwell, Production Manager at North American Roofing. Another prominent Darin Blood owns Sharp Edge Tree and Landscape in Georgia.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Willie Bloomquist.
