Player Profile: Greg Brock

I have 42 cards of Greg Brock. This one is from 1988 Donruss.

Playing career: Greg Brock was drafted by the Dodgers in 1979 and tore through the minor leagues, culminating in a 1982 season where he hit .310 with 44 HR and 138 RBI at AAA Albuquerque. In 1983 he hit 20 home runs as a Dodgers rookie but never came close to repeating his minor league success (accomplished mostly in an extreme hitters park and league) in the big leagues. Still he put up respectable numbers in his ten major league seasons with the Dodgers and Brewers he hit .248 with 110 HR and 462 RBI.

Where he is now: A mostly retired youth coach in Colorado.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is sixth when you type Greg Bro, between Greg Brown Tour, referring to a singer, and Greg Brody, who pitched for the Giants’ AZL rookie league team last year. Another prominent Greg Brock was a character on the TV show “The West Wing”.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jermaine Brock.
