Today In Brewer History: Happy Birthday, Bryan Clutterbuck

On this day in 1959, Bryan Clutterbuck was born in Detroit, Michigan. He went to college at Eastern Michigan and the Brewers drafted him in the seventh round (176th overall) of the 1981 draft. He played six seasons in the minors before making his major league debut in 1986.

Clutterbuck had a relatively brief major league career: He pitched 20 games in relief for the 1986 Brewers, then went back to the minors for two more years before returning as a starter in 1989 and appearing in 14 games. Despite having pitched reasonably well (a 4.21 ERA in 124 career innings), he was done with affiliated baseball at age 29.

Back in 2010 Sully Baseball wrote a post about some emails he'd gotten about Clutterbuck's life post-baseball. It appears he's living in Michigan and coaching Little Leaguers. Kudos to him for finding a way to keep giving back to the game.

Thanks to the B-Ref Play Index for alerting me to the fact that Clutterbuck turns 52 today.
