Glen McNabb 1990 Salem Buccaneers card
Millikan High head coach Dan Peters previewed the 1987 season and singled out to The Los Angeles Times his new right fielder Glen McNabb.

"He's gonna be a player," Peters told The Times of McNabb. "Got a real strong arm."

McNabb played well enough that year and the next to immediately turn pro. His pro career lasted four seasons. He never made AA.

McNabb's career began in 1988, taken by the Pirates in the third round of the draft out of Long Beach, Calif.'s Millikan High. McNabb is also credited as Glenn McNabb.

McNabb started with the Pirates at rookie Princeton. He hit .247 in 46 games. He knocked in a run on a single in a June game. He then went 3 for 4, with three RBI in an August contest.

He moved to single-A Augusta for 1989. He hit .265 over 124 games that year. He picked up three hits and two RBI in a May game.

McNabb then played a shortened 1990 at high-A Salem. He hit .267 over 49 games. He knocked two hits in a May game. He missed 1991 and returned for 15 games with the Royals at single-A Appleton in 1992 to end his career.
