Frame came back to pitch well enough to sign professionally with the Dodgers weeks later. His pro career lasted two seasons. He made high-A.
Frame's career began in 1989, signed by the Dodgers as an undrafted free agent out of Sacramento State.
Frame moved to high-A Bakersfield for 1990. He saw 31 games in relief, started one, went 1-3, with four saves and turned in a 4.50 ERA. That season marked the last of his career.
