Player Profile: Tony Brizzolara

I have one card of Tony Brizzolara, from 1980 Topps.

Playing career: Tony Brizzolara pitched ten seasons of professional baseball, making the major leagues with the Atlanta Braves in three of those years. Overall his major league record was 8-11 with a 5.06 ERA. A fuller account of his career can be found at 1980 Topps Blog.

Where he is now: An actuarial consultant for Kravitz, Inc.

My memories: He shared some baseball card stories with this blog in 2009.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Tony Briz, ahead of Tony Brizendine, an engineering professor at the University of North Carolina. Another prominent Tony Brizzolara is a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Lance Broadway.
