Brian Boehringer was drafted by the Astros in the 1990 draft in the 1oth round but did not sign. He was drafted by the White Sox in the 4th round of the 1991 draft. In 1994 he was traded to the Yankees for Paul Assenmacher and made his major league debut against the Kansas City Royals on April 30, 1995. On November 18, 1997 he was drafted by the Devil Rays with the 30th pick in the expansion draft, on the same day he was traded with Andy Sheets to the Padres for John Flaherty. He played for three season with the Padres, with an 11-10 record. In 2000 he was released and signed as a free agent with the Yankees, before he was traded to the Giants for Bobby Estalella and Joe Smith. He signed as a free agent with the Pirates, where he pitched his final game on June 1, 2004. He wasn't quite finished though as he signed as a free agent with the Yankees, Cubs, Royals, and Tigers, but never made it back to the majors. According to his wikipedia entry he is now playing on several city league softball teams. I can tell because of the lovely green signature, that this is one of the cards I got signed through the mail.
