Astros in the Sky
Born: Jul 13, 1941
Signed originally by the Tigers, Bryant first surfaced with the Cubs in 1966 where he hit .308 in 13 games. The backup catcher hit .193 during parts of two seasons with the Astros after the expansion draft depleted Houston's catching corps.
After retiring as a player, Bryant served as a bullpen coach for the Boston Red Sox from 1974 to 1976.
Bryant passed away at age 73 in Gainesville, FL.
