Brubaker pitched in just two major league games, the first for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1967 and the second for the Milwaukee Brewers in 1970. He did not fare well either time, logging a total of 3.1 innings while allowing five runs. Still, he got on a baseball card, which is more than most of us can say. His minor-league career was much more successful. He pitched for 13 seasons in the minors. He won 16 games in 1960 and 15 in 1964. But this success never translated to the majors and he was out of professional baseball following the 1972 season.
