Tim Brown was perfect.
On June 1, 1993, Brown set down each Toledo batter he faced for the 2-0, seven-inning victory.
Despite that outing, though, Brown couldn't break through to the majors. That year marked his sixth as a pro. He got into one more season, also at AAA, but never made the bigs.
Brown's career began in 1988, taken by the Blue Jays in the 25th round of the draft out of St. Petersburg College. He went there out of Brandon High School in Florida.
Brown made all-state at St. Petersburg. He started with the Blue Jays at short-season St. Catharines. He went 1-3 there over 15 outings, eight starts. He threw a four-hit shutout against Hamilton in his second start.
He played 1989 at single-A Myrtle Beach. He went 3-12 there, with a 4.47 ERA over 34 outings, 22 starts. He also saved a game.
Brown played 1990 at high-A Dunedin. He started off slow, going two innings in an early April game and giving up two earned. Overall, he got into 36 games in relief and posted a 4.43 ERA.
He played 1991 back at Dunedin, then hit AA Knoxville and AAA Syracuse in 1992. He went 8-13 between the two levels in 1992.
Brown then played 1993 completely at Syracuse. He went 5-13, with a 4.47 ERA. He didn't play in 1994, but returned for one final season in 1995. He webt 3-8, with a 6.27 ERA to end is career.
