Player Profile: Jim Blueberg

I have three cards of Jim Blueberg. This one is from 1987 ProCards.

Playing career: Jim Blueberg pitched for six seasons in the Mariners and Yankees organizations, going 46-48 with a 3.77 ERA. His best season was 1989, when he went 11-6 with a 2.12 ERA for San Bernardino. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: A scout for the Mets.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Interesting facts: His son Cody was drafted and signed by the Padres in 2014.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type Jim Blue, between Jim Blue Pillar to Post, a home inspector in Alabama, and Jim Blue Photography, an African safari nature photographer. There do not appear to be any other prominent Jim Bluebergs.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brent Blum.
