 Biographical Information
He spent 1955 in the Military, returning a couple of months into the 1956 season and hitting a career high .281 in 102 games. He then settled into the Motor City and won a Gold Glove for fielding in 1958
He was briefly teamed with his brother, shortstop Milt Bolling, as the double-play combination in Detroit in 1958. Their uncle, Jack Bolling, hit .313 in 125 games as a first baseman with the 1939 Phillies and the 1944 Dodgers.
Bolling played his entire Major League career with two teams, the Detroit Tigers and the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves. He was involved in a six player trade between those two teams before the 1961 season, going to the Braves along with a prospect for Bill Bruton and three other players.
After he retired Bolling, a 1953 graduate of Spring Hill College, returned to his native Mobile, AL, where he got involved in charity work and started a baseball league for physically or mentally challenged youth, the Frank Bolling Adaptive Baseball League. This was the first league of its kind, and now there are a number of such leagues across the country.
