Biographical Information[edit]

Jim Brower pitched nine big league seasons. In 2004, he was the NL appearances leader, coming on 89 times for the San Francisco Giants with a 7-7, 3.29 record and a save in 93 innings.

Following his big league days, he was a very late addition to the Rimini roster for 2010, replacing Harold Eckert in late March when Eckert could not come to Italy for family reasons. Jim had an Italian Baseball League debut to remember, tossing a no-hitter on Opening Day against Grosseto. He had a perfect game entering the sixth but finished with two walks versus 10 strikeouts. His second game was nearly a no-hitter as well; in 8 innings against Godo, he allowed one hit and no runs in a 2-0 win. James Bucchi broke up the no-no in the 8th. Brower was the pitching coach of the Kane County Cougars beginning the next year, lasting from 2011-2012, and Northwest Arkansas Naturals in 2013-2015. In 2019, he was named bullpen coach of the Seattle Mariners but was let go at the end of the season.
