Player Profile: Rod Billingsley

I have one card of Rod Billingsley, from the 1989 Spokane Indians set.

Playing career: Catcher Rod Billingsley played in the Padres organization in 1989 and 1990. In 57 games he hit .209 with 2 HR and 24 RBI. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: Head of US Federal Government Sales at Tintri, an IT contractor.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type Rod Billi, between Rod Billington and Rod Billington Frodsham, both of which refer to a mortgage broker in the UK. Another prominent Rod Billingsley managed a convenience store in Missouri.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Ty Blach.
