Throwback Thursday: Emil Brown AUTO

Normally I use Throwback Thursdays for players before the 90s, but due to a lack of time and the fact that I was given this card from a friend out of those repack Target "guaranteed autos" packs I thought it was a good time to highlight the baseball career of today's subject...


The End!!!!

Just Kidding!  The fact that anyone makes it to the major leagues is quite an accomplishment so I won't make fun of Emil anymore.  Emil was drafted in the 6th round of 1994 draft by the Oakland Athletics.  A few years later he was in the majors as a 22 year old playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates.  His performance in Pittsburgh was what most fans saw of the "talent" levels in Pittsburgh during The Losing Streak years.  In parts of 5 seasons wearing black and gold, Emil hit .205 with only a .310 slugging percentage.  His best season came during his age 31 and 32 seasons when he was hitting .286 and averaging 16 HR and 84 RBI while a member of the Kansas City Royals.  He last played for the New York Mets on June 6th, 2009.
