All Star Pick Player Profile: A.J. Pierzynski
This post will be the first of many in our player profile series at All Star Pick. As a company, we feel that it is important for you to get to know a little bit more about our athletes from a couple different perspectives. First, we will discuss the athlete's on-field success. We will also be describing about what each athlete represents and what kind of person they are outside of sports. Our first athlete in this series is none other than 2005 World Series Champion, A.J. Pierzynski.
A.J. Pierzynski is a former American professional baseball catcher. Pierzynski had an 18 year career in Major League Baseball (MLB) with the Minnesota Twins (1998–2003), San Francisco Giants (2004), Chicago White Sox (2005–2012), Texas Rangers (2013), Boston Red Sox (2014), St. Louis Cardinals (2014) and Atlanta Braves (2015–2016). Pierzynski had a career .280 batting average, along with two MLB All Star Game appearances (2002, 2006) and a Silver Slugger award (2012). He was also an integral part of the White Sox' magical 2005 World Series run with nine runs batted in (RBI) in thirteen 2005 postseason appearances. Below are some highlights of his great MLB career.
Retiring in 2016, A.J. Pierzynski has made a seamless transition to broadcasting, covering Major League Baseball as a full-time analyst for Fox. With 18 years of MLB experience, Pierzynski provides a fresh perspective of what life is like inside the clubhouse. Outside of Fox, he has dedicated his free time to staying involved in his kid's lives, regularly attending and chauffeuring his kids from practice to practice.
With such a long and consistent career, A.J. Pierzynski has proven that hard work and dedication can lead to great success on and off the diamond. He is a great role model for us at All Star Pick, and we hope that he can help inspire you in the near future. For inquiries on booking A.J., fill out the contact form on his player profile.
