Player Profile: Scott Brosius

I have 61 cards of Scott Brosius. This one is from 1997 Pinnacle.

Playing career: Third baseman Scott Brosius played eleven seasons for the A’s and Yankees, hitting .257 with 141 HR and 531 RBI. His best seasons was 1998, when he hit .300 with 19 HR and 98 RBI, making the All Star team. His postseason was even better, earning World Series MVP honors by hitting .471 with two home runs, including one off of Trevor Hoffman to win Game 3. He also fielded the last out of the World Series that year.

My memories: He was a Yankee fan favorite as the third baseman for their 1998-2000 World Champion teams. (Though when he wasn’t going well he was occasionally referred to as Scott Atrocious). He kindly answered my questions on baseball cards for this blog in 2009.

Where he is now: Hitting coach for the Mariners’ AAA team in Tacoma.

Google Autocomplete results: He is tenth when you type Scott Br, behind Scott Braun, a reporter for the MLB Network. There do not appear to be any other prominent Scott Brosiuses.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jason Brosnan.
