Brian was selected by the Montreal Expos in the first round of the 1983 June free agent draft. He was the sixteenth player selected overall. Brian made his Major League debut on June 25, 1988, vs. Barry Bonds and the Pittsburgh Pirates. He recorded his first Major League win on June 30, 1988, when he threw a five-hit complete game shutout vs. Tom Glavine and the Atlanta Braves. In 1989, Brian was traded to the Seattle Mariners along with Randy Johnson and on April 9, 1990, Brian was the Mariners “Opening Night” starting pitcher vs. the California Angels and recorded the victory with a 7-1 win. Brian is perhaps most well known for his pitching performance on April 20, 1990 vs. the Oakland A’s when he came within one out of throwing a perfect game. Known as a fierce competitor, Brian was a workhorse for the Mariners during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s logging 32 wins and fourteen complete games, five of those shutouts in just two and a half seasons of work. He was on his way to a very bright future when regrettably; his playing career was cut short when an arm injury forced him to retire. Brian is currently the Managing Director of the Kansas City, KS, office of Ronald Blue & Co. Ronald Blue & Co. is a fee only investment advisory firm specializing in comprehensive financial, estate and investment counsel from a biblical perspective. Brian is involved with many non-profit organizations including the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Brian is a highly respected and sought after motivational speaker. His inspirational messages have had a tremendous impact at various events across the United States and Canada.
