Patrick Edward Rockett (born January 9, 1955 in San Antonio, Texas) was a baseball shortstop who played for the Atlanta Braves between 1976 and 1978. Rockett was drafted by the Braves with the 10th pick of the 1973 amateur draft. He played his first game with the Braves on September 17, 1976 against the Los Angeles Dodgers; it was one of only four major league games he played in that season.[1] Rockett played two more seasons with the Braves before being traded to the Toronto Blue Jays along with Barry Bonnell and Joey McLaughlin in exchange for Chris Chambliss and Luis Gómez. However, Rockett never played a game with the Blue Jays, and his major league career ended after the trade.[1]
