Rico Brogna was born on Saturday, April 18, 1970, in Turners Falls, Massachusetts. Brogna was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 8, 1992, with the Detroit Tigers. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Rico Brogna baseball stats page.

"I was 18 and played in a few spring training games with Detroit. I got lucky and got a few hits, so (then-Tiger manager) Sparky Anderson put the tag on me, saying here's the next Mickey Mantle or Kirk Gibson. Of course I believed it all, which only set me up for disappointment. You don't think you can do anything wrong when you're 20. When you're an All-American high school player, you think you're gonna stay at that level. I thought I'd stay as one of the best everywhere I went. I didn't know how hard I had to work to get better. You have to have the skills and the work ethic to become a major leaguer, but learning the subtleties of the game is the difference between winning and losing. The talent level in the big leagues is amazing. Emotionally, there's a lot of pressure. Until I came to grips with that pressure to perform and win, I didn't become a better player." - Rico Brogna in Christianiaty Today (Ron Mentus | May 1999)
