Bobby St. Pe signed as a free agent out of high school; Saw two pro seasons, both in rookie ball

Butte Copper Kings manager Bump Wills assessed his incoming pitching staff in June 1990 to The Montana Standard, including hurler Bobby St. Pe.

St. Pe, Wills told The Standard, had a chance to start, but his role likely would be as a reliever or as a spot starter.

St. Pe's role ended up being just that, as reliever and one-time starter. That season, his second as a pro, also proved his last.

St. Pe's career began in 1989, signed by the Rangers as an undrafted free agent out of Riverdale High School in Metarie, La. St. Pe was also credited by his given name, Irving St. Pe.

St. Pe started with the Rangers in the rookie Gulf Coast League. He got into eight games and started one. He gave up 14 earned in 21 innings for a 6.00 ERA.

He then moved to rookie Butte for 1990. He picked up a win in relief in a June game. He gave up two earned in two-thirds of an inning a couple days later. He gave up four earned in an inning of work in July. He picked up his third win on the year in an early August relief outing.

Overall, St. Pe got into 15 outings that year and started one. He went 3-0, but ended with a 11.30 ERA to end his career.
