Player Profile: Dwain Bostic

I have three cards of Dwain Bostic. This one is from 1993 Classic Draft Picks.

Playing career: Dwain Bostic (not “Dwaine” as he is listed on Baseball Reference and Baseball Cube) was the Dodgers’ second round draft pick in 1992. In 35 games that year as a seventeen-year old in the Gulf Coast League, he hit .203 with 1 HR, 13 RBI and 10 SB. He played in four games as an eighteen-year-old in rookie league Great Falls, hitting .143, and sixteen games as a nineteen-year old for the Cardinals’ Arizona State League affiliate, hitting .231. He did not play affiliated ball in his twenties, but did play in 32 games of independent ball. A rare second-round draft pick who couldn’t even get out of rookie league.

Where he is now: A realtor in California, and an instructor at MVP Baseball Academy in California.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Dwain Bos, ahead of Dwain Boswell, an author. There do not appear to be any other prominent Dwain Bostics.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Lyman Bostock.
