Rawmeat Bill Rodgers only played in the majors in 1915-1916, but he spent many more years in the minors. Rodgers' career spanned from 1911 to 1931, including 1911-1914 and 1916-1921 in the Pacific Coast League. On July 20, 1916, he completed an unassisted triple play while playing for the Portland Beavers in the Pacific Coast League.
Rodgers' son Buck Rodgers (minors), played in the minor leagues from 1935 to 1939. When Bill was named manager of Sanford in May 1938, Buck asked for his release from the club so that he wouldn't play for his father.
He is not to be confused with the other Bill Rodgers.
