Why do I have no memory of Bryan Clutterbuck?



Going through my old baseball cards I stumbled across this one.

Brewers pitcher Bryan Clutterbuck.

I have no memory of Bryan Clutterbuck.

Now keep in mind he pitched for the Brewers in the late 1980s.
In the late 1980s I was following baseball even closer than I am now if you can believe it.

I would read Baseball America faithfully and know which teams had the best prospects and usually knew something about each player when they were recalled from the minor leagues.

Yeah, I forgot about some players. But when I saw a card for say Joey Meyer recently, it would spark a vague memory.

Not Clutterbuck.

I did a complete Google Search in my brain. No recollection of him what so ever.

Yet there he was, sitting in a shoebox in my parents garage.

Am I losing my memory?
Is forgetting Clutterbuck the first sign?

    If it is the first sign then we all are losing our memory.

    My only memory is his name, which is very close to clusterf*ck.

    If you google him looks like he's driving a truck for a non-profit in Detroit.

    He's been a family favorite of ours since shortly after the card was released. I think we had the 1987 card, which is different from yours. My nephews were little (now all in their early to late 20s) and they had it in their collection. Thanks for sharing. Toad

    I know Bryan Clutterbuck personally he resides in michigan now coaching little league and training older little leaguers who want to perfect their skills on the field. It's a shame he never did much at all with his mlb career.

    I remember Bryan we would get together when he came to Denver when he pitched for the Zephers. He is a very nice guy. Would love to say Hi! I wondered what he was up to. I'll bet he is a good coach.

    He's a dick, he's my damn high school coach. Lazy sits around on his bucket all day relaxing. He's pretty mediocre, but not terrible. He freakin puts people in positions they can't play.

    Bryan is a very very special man. He is a caring coach, a great dad and one of the finest friends I have every had. He spends his time as a coach and is involved in 16 u summer leagues. He doesn't sit on his butt, and he cares about people deeply. He is a great family man, devoted father and brother. He would give you the shirt off his back, and that means something now days. I am proud to know and love him!
