Player Profile: Ben Broussard

I have thirteen cards of Ben Broussard. This one is from 2003 Fleer Tradition.

Playing career: First baseman Ben Broussard played seven seasons in the major leagues, mostly for the Indians and Mariners. He had four straight seasons of 15+ home runs from 2003 to 2006 and finished his career hitting .263 with 87 HR and 314 RBI in 705 games.

Where he is now: He is a professional musician who has recorded two albums of soft rock music, Ben Broussard and Renovated.

My memories: I remember him as a big slugger, one of many the Indians seemed to churn out those days. I would have guessed he had well over 100 home runs; didn’t realize how short his career was.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Ben Brou, ahead of Ben Broughton, a real estate agent in Illinois. Another prominent Ben Broussard is VP of Development at the LSU Tiger Athletic Foundation.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Scott Brow.
