Picturing America’s Pastime :: Baseball is More Than Just a Game

Foreword by Randy Johnson

“Over 22 big league seasons, Randy Johnson won 303 games – the fifth-best total among all left-handers at the time of his retirement. The 6-foot-10 Johnson won the 1995 American League Cy Young Award with the Mariners and four straight National League Cy Young Awards with the Diamondbacks from 1999-2002. A fearsome competitor and 10-time All-Star, Johnson led his league in strikeouts nine times, mixing a blistering fastball with a darting slider. He shared World Series Most Valuable Player honors with Diamondbacks teammate Curt Schilling after going 3-0 in the 2001 Fall Classic, leading Arizona to a seven-game victory over the Yankees. Elected to the Hall of Fame in 2015 in his first year of eligibility, Johnson has traveled the world in the years since his retirement from the game – following his passion for music and photography. He is based in Phoenix, Arizona.”
