John Rocker Biography

He threw left handed and batted right handed. Rocker is a native of Macon, Georgia and lives in Atlanta. John Rocker was a star pitcher for First Presbyterian Day School in Macon, Georgia. Rocker threw three no hitters during his high school profession. He was soon drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 18th round (516th general) of the 1993 Major League Baseball Draft. In 1998, he was promoted to the major league club. The next year, an injury set Atlanta closer Kerry Ligtenberg on the DL, transferring Rocker to the job of closer, where he was 4–5 with 38 saves and a 2.49 ERA. Braves fans were initially prepared to support him; yet, as Rocker received extreme taunting from opposing teams’ supporters, his pitching performance decreased. Rocker was traded for right handed relievers Steve Karsay and Steve Reed and cash for Rocker and minor league infielder Troy Cameron, Atlanta’s first-round draft pick in 1997. In Cleveland, his record was 3–7 with a 5.45 ERA and four saves. The Indians chose to not keep him and traded him to the Texas Rangers for pitcher David Elder. In Texas, he refused designation to the minor leagues. In 2002, he again fought at 2–3 with a 6.66 ERA and was released. He took the 2004 season off to recuperate from surgery on his left shoulder. In 2005, he signed together with the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League. In April 2005, he asked New Yorkers to “bury the hatchet.” After going 0–2 with a 6.50 ERA in 23 matches, he was released on June 27, 2005.

Quotes

#Quote
1People make me out to be this horrible person because of things I've said. I'm really not. I may be a redneck, but I am not a racist. Everybody says things that are stupid or stuff they regret at one time or another. It's just that not everyone has them published in a magazine that is disributed to millions of people around the country.
