Player Profile: Dan Briggs

I have three cards of Dan Briggs. This one is from 1979 Topps.

Playing career: Outfielder Dan Briggs played seven years in the major leagues for the Angels, Indians, Padres, Expos and Cubs. His best season was 1979, when he hit 8 home runs in 227 at bats for the Padres. A fuller account of his career can be found at the 1980 and 1982 Topps blogs.

Where he is now: Owner of the Big League Baseball School in Worthington, Ohio.

My memories: He shared his thoughts on baseball cards with this blog in 2013.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Dan Bri, between Dan Brill, who works in advertising, and Dan Brisse, a snowboarder. The first entry when you google Dan Briggs is not the ballplayer but the bass guitarist for the band Between the Buried and Me.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Stoney Briggs.
