Collection: Orlando Rodriguez

There isn't much to say about this gentleman. Orlando Rodriguez played most of his professional career for the Dodgers farm system. From 2001 to 2005 he toiled on the dusty diamonds of Baseball dreams, but never had an opportunity to taste the nectar of the Major League world. At one time, he was thought to be a potential situational lefty out of the pen. As the reverse of the two cards featured here state, he had a knack for striking folks out. Heck a strike out ratio of over 12 is a good foundation to build on. As he advanced up the ladder, though, his effectiveness diminished, and so did his dreams of the show. He played in a few independent leagues after being released, and was last seen playing in Mexico.

Featured here are his 2004 Donruss Playoff Leather & Lumber autographed rookie card and 2005 Donruss 'The Rookies' card.
