On February 21, 2013 — 2013 – A former Florida Marlins top prospect at third base in the 1990s, Josh Booty is back in baseball after winning a reality television show produced by the MLB Network called “The Next Knuckler”. Booty’s knuckleball wins him an invitation to spring training with the Diamondbacks. He is now 38 years old and was a star quarterback in college football after washing out of the major leagues. He will fail to earn a contract, however.
