September 19

1994 Pinnacle Museum Collection #130 - Rodney Bolton

On this day in 1995, Rodney Bolton played his last MLB game.

Rod was selected by the White Sox in the thirteenth round of the 1990 amateur draft. He was a bit hyped up before his arrival in the big leagues in April 1994, but that was only because the White Sox were projected to win the World Series that year. Rodney had managed to crack the starting rotation.

Bolton would be sent to the pen for the 1995 season, as other options were found for the rotation. In January 1996, Rodney was sold to the Fukuoka Daiei Hawks (Japan Pacific). After a year in Japan, he would find himself in the Cincinnati minor league system, followed by Philadelphia's and then Milwaukee's. Bolton last played for the independent league Camden Riversharks in 2001.
