Bruce Robbins

1981 Fleer

Robbins went 7-5 during two seasons spent with the Detroit Tigers. He came up as a 19-year old for the Tigers in 1979 and made eight starts, going 3-3 with a 3.91 ERA. However, he could not maintain his solid start and saw his ERA skyrocket to 6.62 in 1980. He did win four games that season, which would be his last in the majors. Robbins remained in the minor leagues through 1983 at which point he was done with pro ball.


Robbins first start came for the Tigers on July 28, 1979 in Toronto against the Blue Jays. He lasted six innings and allowed two runs but took the loss as Dave Lemanczyk threw a three-hit shutout for Toronto.
