Player Profile: Ken Brett

I have seven cards of Ken Brett. This one is from 1982 Fleer.

Playing career: The older brother of Royals’ star George Brett, Ken Brett was a decent pitcher best known for pitching for ten teams in his fourteen-year MLB career, a record at the time. His best season was 1974, when he was an All-Star for the Pirates, going 13-9 with a 3.30 ERA. Overall he was 83-85 with a 3.93 ERA.

Post-baseball career: He was involved in a number of sports business ventures, both on his own and with his brothers. He died of cancer in 2003.

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

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Ken Br, between Ken Brody, Co-Founder of Taconic Capital, and Ken Brown, an artist. Another prominent Ken Brett is State Manager at Gordon Brothers Industries.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Ryan Brett.
