Draft

Brusstar, who batted and threw right handed, was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in 1970 in the 27th round (635th overall). He chose not to sign. In 1971, he was drafted by the Giants again, this time in the 6th round (114th overall). Again, the 6'3", 200 pound Brusstar did not sign.

Minor Leagues

Brusstar was a very successful starter and reliever in the minor leagues-his ERA never reached 3.00 in any of the years he played before making his major league debut (the highest it reached was 2.71). His control was a big issue in the minors though, as twice he walked 90 or more batters.


Major Leagues

On May 6, 1977, at the age of 25, Brusstar made his major league debut. He would never start a game in his career, because he was used primarily as a middle reliever. Only 3 times did he ever appear in over 50 games in a season, because Brusstar, a sinker-slider pitcher, was constantly hampered by shoulder problems. May 6 is the 126th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (127th in leap years). ... For the album by Ash, see 1977 (album). ...
