College of Southern Idaho reliever John Braase helped save his team's season in this May 1987 playoff contest, The Twin Falls Times-News wrote.

Braase came on for the starter and held his opponents as Southern Idaho came back for the win, The Times-News wrote.

"You can't say enough good words about John Braase," Southern Idaho coach Jim Walker told The Times-News

Braase went on from Southern Idaho to turn pro. His pro career lasted three seasons. He topped out at high-A.

Braase's career began in 1988, taken by the Dodgers in the 29th round of the draft out of Southern Idaho and the College of Idaho.

At Southern Idaho, Braase had a 2.42 ERA and struck out 66 in 1987. In 1988 at the College of Idaho, Braase went 7-1, with a 2.42 ERA as he struck out 69. In May 1988, Braase went seven innings, allowing four hits and striking out eight in a win.

He started with the Dodgers at rookie Great Falls. He got into 17 games, starting seven. He went 4-0, with a 3.09 ERA. That July, he went five innings while giving up three, but he got the win.

Braase moved to the rookie Gulf Coast League for 1989. He went 2-0, with a 2.34 ERA over 21 outings. He also saved six.

He arrived at high-A Bakersfield for 1990. In 29 outings, one start, he went 3-3, with a 4.84 ERA and saved two. That year proved his final season as a pro.
