2002 Bowman, Jason Cooper
#BDP9 Jason Cooper
Here is another card that I got signed at a Wingnuts game this year. Jason plays for the St. Paul Saints and I got this card signed at the last Nuts game I went to two weeks ago.
Jason was a third round pick of the Indians in 2002 out of Stanford. It looked like he was on the fast track to the Majors as he was in AAA by 2004. But, it hasn't worked out for him and he has spent parts of six seasons in AAA, all with the Buffalo Bisons. In over 1500 AAA at-bats, Jason is a .240 hitter with 49 homers and 226 RBI.
Last season was his last year playing affiliated ball. He played 26 games for the Bisons before hitting the Atlantic League for a bit and eventually ending up in St. Paul.
Just like Reggie Abercrombie, Jason will be representing the North Division at the American Association All Star game later this month.
