Player Profile: Jim Bowie

I have two cards of Jim Bowie. This one is from 1987 ProCards.

Playing career: First baseman Jim Bowie played in six games for the Oakland A's in 1994, getting three hits in fourteen at-bats. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: A hitting coach at Strictly Baseball in Fairfield, CA.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is tenth when you type Jim B, after Jim Brickman, a musician. There are no references to the ballplayer on the first page of Google results; all refer to the pioneer who died at the Alamo.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Micah Bowie.
