Biographical Information[edit]

First baseman Broderick Perkins played seven seasons in the major leagues, mostly with the San Diego Padres, usually posting a batting average over .270. The only season he had over 300 at-bats was in 1982, although he was also a regular in 1981, a strike-shortened season.

Because he didn't show much power as a first baseman, the most similar players (according to the similarity scores method) are a couple of dead-ball era players, Scoops Carey and Butch Schmidt.

Perkins was inducted into the Diablo Valley College (Pleasant Hill, CA) Hall of Fame on February 28, 2008. After being named team MVP in 1974, Perkins transferred to Saint Mary's College of California. He was drafted by San Diego in the 1976 amateur draft.

He is one of six players with the last name Perkins, but the only major leaguer (through 2007) with the first name Broderick.
