Player Profile: Jay Bobel

I have one card of Jay Bobel, from 1987 ProCards.

Playing career: Jay Bobel was drafted by the Angels in 1987 and pitched for their Salem team that year, going 2-4 with a 6.07 ERA in thirteen games. The following season he pitched for Reno in the independent California league, going 1-4 with a 7.17 ERA in fourteen games. Eighteen years later, he attempted a comeback as a knuckleballer for Calgary of the Northern league. In six games he went 0-2 with a 9.97 ERA.

Where he is now: A self-described “serial entrepreneur” who currently owns the financial services firm Spartan Equities and the baseball camp Michigan College Connect. He is also a scout for the Rockies.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is ninth when you type Jay Bob, between Jay Bob Strike Back, referring to a movie, and Jay Bobbin Tribune, a writer. There do not appear to be any other prominent Jay Bobels.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Elgin Bobo.
