Booty is set to report to camp Friday with a non-roster invitation.
The show on the MLB Network was called ``The Next Knuckler.'' Booty met Thursday with Diamondbacks announcer Tom Candiotti, a longtime knuckleballer in the majors.
The 37-year-old Booty played 13 games for the Marlins from 1996-98. He also played quarterback at LSU.
Booty was among five former college quarterbacks in the competition. His brother, John David Booty, was joined by Doug Flutie, David Greene and Ryan Perrilloux.
