Diamondbacks release ex-QB Booty
The Arizona Diamondbacks have released Josh Booty, who had
earned an invitation to the team’s spring training by winning a
televised knuckleball competition among former college
”The Next Knuckler” competition was held on MLB Network, with
Booty beating out his brother John David Booty, Doug Flutie, David
Greene and Ryan Perrilloux.
Josh Booty has major league experience, playing 13 games for the
Marlins from 1996-98. He also played quarterback at LSU.
Diamondbacks President Derrick Hall says the team ”thoroughly
enjoyed” having Booty in camp and gave him an opportunity to make
the team but ”it `did not work out for him.”
