Minor League Monday - Bob Brower, 1986 ProCards.

Today we see the final player card from the 1986 ProCards Oklahoma City Eighty-Niners set, Bob Brower. On this card Bob is listed as living in Virgina. He now lives in Kansas, actually not all that far from where I live.

Brower spent most of the 1986 season at Triple A. His records are sketchy but it appears that he played in the outfield for all of the 140 games he appeared in for the Eighty-Niners. I can't locate any defensive stats for him.

In 550 at bats Bob put together a .287 batting average for OKC. He tallied 158 hits with 25 of them being doubles, seven triples, and 13 home runs. His runs scored, RBI, walks, and strikeout totals are not available.

After spending that previous four seasons and most of 1986 in the minors Bob finally got the call. He made his major league debut for the Rangers on September 3, 1986. At 26 years of age he had broken into the Bigs. Now he just needed to stay there.

**Quick reminder to be sure and enter the Strat-O-Matic contest. Right now Night Owl is looking at an easy win.***
