Player Profile: Tyler Brilinski

I have one card of Tyler Brilinski, from 1990 ProCards.

Playing career: Power-hitting first baseman Tyler Brilinski played in the Oakland organization from 1985 to 1989, which was the wrong time and organization to be a power-hitting first baseman, blocked as he was by Mark McGwire. In 1986 at Class-A Modesto he hit .324 with 27 HR and 91 RBI. Though he put up pretty good home run totals as he moved up to AA and AAA, his batting averages plummeted and he did not make the major leagues.

Where he is now: Founding Member & Partner at Watermark Wealth Strategies in Phoenix.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type Tyler Bril, between Tyler Briley Hockey, a youth hockey player in Maryland, and Tyler Briley, a youth football player in Louisiana. There do not appear to be any other prominent Tyler Brilinskis.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brad Brink.
