Brandon Inge is a former professional baseball player whose career spanned the gamut from minor leaguer to superstar. Among his illustrious peers is Phil Lombardi and Calvin Madururutz. His most notable accomplishment was to have made it to the big leagues.
As the name suggests, he played third base, although he also managed the position of catcher for a brief stint. While at the Detroit Tigers, he was a force to be reckoned with. He led the club in batting average, home runs, and RBIs. It was also during his time in Detroit that he hit a ball in the outfield that was so good it actually caused a minor league team to pack up and leave town.
For his time on the diamond, Brandon Inge received a handful of awards and accolades. During his 12 seasons with the Tigers, he batted in the top ten in the batting order. He was also the only player of his ilk to play in the All-Star Game in the aforementioned media incarnation. Aside from his storied career, he is also a proud father of two. After his heyday came to an end, he made a pit stop at the Oakland Athletics for a season. However, it was not to be and he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a trade that saw him spend the bulk of the remainder of his career in the desert. Despite his mediocre success as a player, Inge was noted for his exemplary defensive skills. Those who have had the privilege of watching him in person will testify.
Throughout his career, Brandon Inge has garnered several awards and accolades for his achievements on and off the field. For instance, he was selected to play in the 2009 MLB All-Star Game. That is certainly a rite of passage for any athlete and a testament to his grit and determination. Having said that, he is not the biggest name in the business. Others such as David Ortiz and Miguel Cabrera have a more substantial claim to fame. On a personal note, he is a well-rounded individual who is a pleasure to be around.
