CHICAGO, Jan. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Rush Street Interactive, Inc. (NYSE: RSI) ("RSI"), a Chicago based gaming and betting company, is proud to announce the signing of former professional baseball manager and player Bobby Valentine.

Bobby is a former Major League Baseball player for the Los Angeles Dodgers, California Angeles, New York Mets, and Seattle Mariners. His managerial career includes the Texas Rangers, the New York Mets, the Boston Red Sox and the championship team he led for the Chiba Lotte Marines in Japan. Valentine has extensive experience as an analyst and announcer for ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball, NBC Sports, and as a regular contributor to MLB on Sirius.
