Biographical Information[edit]

Catching in 2012

Brandon Allen was signed by the Chicago White Sox and scouts Paul Provas and Keith Staab as a 5th round pick in the 2004 amateur draft.

The Tampa Bay Rays claimed Allen off waivers from the Oakland Athletics on April 21, 2012. He made his presence felt in his first two appearances for the Rays, both as a pinch-hitter; on April 25th, after 17 days of inactivity, he drew a bases-loaded walk off Jason Isringhausen of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to drive in the winning run in the 8th inning of a 3-2 win, then the next day hit a walk off two-run homer off Jordan Walden in the bottom of the 9th for a 4-3 win over the same Angels.

Allen became a coach with the Johnson City Cardinals in 2017.
