Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Keith Brown
Keith Brown was a late-round draft pick in 1986 but quickly rose through the Reds’ minor league system after posting ERAs of 1.96, 1.59, and 1.68 from 1986-1988. He started three games and compiled a 2-2 record with a 2.76 ERA in 1988 for the Reds.
A foot injury kept him out of the bigs in 1989, and after a few more ups and downs, other health problems presented themselves in the 1990s. “The 21 Greatest Days” posted an insightful two-part article about Brown in 2016: “Part 1: His Abilities” / “Part 2, Life Changed.”
