John Smoltz Net Worth $55 Million

Who Is Lying to Us About Smoltzie? John Smoltz or Smoltzie is an American former Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher and an energetic sportscaster that has an estimated net worth of $55 million. Produced John Andrew Smoltz on May 15, 1967 in Warren Michigan, he is famous for his prolific career of over two decades with the Atlanta Braves. He garnered eight All-Star selections and received the Cy Young Award in 1996. In 2001, he was converted into a reliever though he is mainly referred to as starting pitcher following his recovery from Tommy John surgery. He spent four years as the team’s closer before returning to a starting job. Smoltz became just the second pitcher ever to have had both a 20-win season along with a 50-save season in 2002 aside from the other Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley. He is the only pitcher in major league history to top both 200 triumphs and 150 saves. Smoltzie threw a four-seam fastball which was clocked as high as 98 miles per hour, a strong, successful slider, and an 88-91 mph split-finger fastball that he used as a strikeout pitch. Smoltz also mixed in a curveball as well as a changeup on occasion. In 1999, he started experimenting with both a knuckleball and a screwball which he seldom found in game situations. On August 16, 2008, he debuted as a baseball commentator alongside Joe Simpson. The Atlanta Braves announced on April 16, 2012 they would retire his number 29.
