Player Profile: Tom Brennan

I have seven cards of Tom Brennan. This one is from 1984 Fleer.

Playing career: Tom Brennan pitched for the Indians, White Sox and Dodgers from 1981 to 1985. In 64 games he went 9-10 with a 4.40 ERA.

Where he is now: A youth baseball instructor in the Chicago area for many years, he played the home plate umpire in the 1993 movie “Rookie of the Year”, according to the Southtown Star.

My memories: Before my time. Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Tom Bre, ahead of Tom Brevoort, a comic book editor. There are no mentions of the baseball player on the first page of Google results; the first entry is for a college basketball announcer.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Bryce Brentz.
