Biographical Information[edit]

Jeff Blauser was by far the most successful player to come out of the secondary phase's first round in the 1984 Amateur Draft. Of the few from that group who made the major leagues, only Blauser has a career WAR above one.

He was primarily a shortstop during a 13-year major league career spent with the Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs, from 1987 to 1999.

In his first three games with the Braves in 1988, he hit a game-winning double and a game-winning home run. He hit .284 with the Richmond Braves in 1988. Between 1987 and 1988, one out of every three of his hits was an extra-base hit. He managed the Mississippi Braves of the Southern League in 2006

Notable Achievements[edit]

  • 2-time NL All-Star (1993 & 1997)
  • NL Silver Slugger Award Winner (1997)
  • 100 Runs Scored Seasons: 1 (1993)
  • Won a World Series with the Atlanta Braves in 1995 (he did not play in the World Series)
