Trot went to New Hanover High School, located in Wilmington, North Carolina, where he started playing baseball but also excelled in football. In his senior year, he earned State Player of the Year honors in both sports. To speak of his baseball career he led his team to the State 4A title, and had a .512 batting average with 12 home runs, while also posting a state-record of 56 RBI. He was also used as a pitcher, and had 12-0 record with an ERA of 0.40. When it comes to football, he played quarterback position and broke the school’s record for passing which was held by Sonny Jurgensen and Roman Gabriel. He received a football scholarship from the North Carolina State University, however, he was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 1993 MLB Draft, and decided to start his baseball career.

He was chosen by the Red Sox as the seventh overall pick, but spent three seasons in minor leagues, before making his debut in1996 for the Red Sox, but played only two games before being sent back to the minors. He was recalled in 1998, and from1999 he became a consistent player for the Red Sox. With the team, he won the World Series in 2004 when they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 4-0 in the series; he was a crucial part as he batted .357 and had 3 doubles and 3 RBIs. Also, he scored last points in the third game for Boston which gave them a 3-0 lead. However, from 2004 his numbers began to decline, and after his contract expired in 2006, the Red Sox decided not to re-sign him.

Trot subsequently signed a contract worth $3 million over one year with the Cleveland Indians, which increased his wealth, and in 99 games he scored three home runs with 31 RBI and a .251 batting average.

After his contract expired he signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks to a minor league contract, and played for the Tucson Sidewinders, but after several successful plays, he was acquired by the New York Mets. Unfortunately, after only 11 games, he finished his season on the disabled list.

He didn’t end his career there, however, as he felt he could still play baseball, and signed a minor contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, but was soon put on the inactive roster, and was released from the team in March 2009, at which point he retired.

He career statistics were 137 home runs, a .274 batting average, and 555 RBIs.
