Biography:

Trying to get a hit on Hall of Fame Speaker and former MLB pitcher Randy Johnson was a tall order during his playing days from 1988-2009. The Big Unit, standing at 6’10, towered over batters on the mound with commanding presence and a powerful 100 MPH fast ball. During his time in the MLB, Randy pitched for 7 different teams most notably the Seattle Mariners and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Randy racked up 303 wins in his career to places him 5th all-time on the wins list. His 4,875 strikeouts are second to only Nolan Ryan in the history of Major League Baseball. In 2015, Randy was voted into the MLB Hall of Fame alongside John Smoltz, Craig Biggio and Pedro Martinez.

The Big Unit broke into the MLB ranks in 1988 with the Montreal Expos. He wouldn’t stay there long and was traded to the Seattle Mariners a year later. Randy threw his first no-hitter in 1990, giving fans a small glimpse into the dominance that was to come. In 1995, Randy won the 1st of 5 career Cy Young Awards compiling an impressive 18-2 record with a 2.48 ERA. In 2001, Randy and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the New York Yankees in the World Series and Randy was named World Series MVP along with teammate Curt Schilling. At 40 years young in 2004, The Big Unit pitched a perfect game, becoming the oldest pitcher to accomplish the difficult feat.

Outside of baseball, Hall of Fame Speaker Randy has made a few guest appearances on Televisions shows such as The Simpsons and Franklin & Bash.

In 1994, Randy was a part of the movie Little Big League, in which he played himself. His popularity gained him a spot on a hilarious GEICO Insurance commercial as well as ad spots for Just For Men, Nike, and Right Guard Deodorant. As a firm believer in Christ, Johnson has been outspoken about his faith, giving credit to God for all of the things he has accomplished both on and off of the baseball diamond. Since his retirement he has taken up photography, publishing his professional photos on his website http://rj51photos.com/.
