Major League Baseball Player. For seven seasons (1952 to 1958), he played at the shortstop, second-base and third-base positions with the Boston Red Sox, Washington Senators and Detroit Tigers. Born Milton Joseph Bolling, he was signed as an amateur free agent by the Red Sox at the age of eighteen and marked his Major League debut with them on September 10th, 1952. He played in 11 games that year and over the next two seasons (1953 to 1954), he secured the starting shortstop position and produced a career-high 92 hits in 1954. In 400 regular season games, he compiled 280 hits with a .241 lifetime batting average. After retiring as a player, he remained in baseball to serve as a longtime scout of 30-years with the Red Sox. His older brother Frank Bolling was an accomplished Major League player (1954, 1956 to 1966) and a teammate of Milt's while with the Tigers in 1958. Milt died from heart related issues. (bio by: C.S.)
