Player Profile: Monte Brooks

I have one card of Monte Brooks, from 1989 Best.

Playing career: Outfielder Monte Brooks played in the Padres organization from 1987 to 1990. In 313 games, all in A ball, he hit .212 with 0 HR, 94 RBI and 61 RBI. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: He is in his sixteenth year as head baseball coach at Masters College.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Monte Bro, between Monte Brough, a former LDS Church elder, and Monte Bromiley, a minister in Texas. The first entry when you google Monte Brooks is not the ballplayer but a TV producer.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Garrett Broshuis.
