1993 Studio John Smoltz

Hobby is golf: Smoltz is a scratch golfer.
Favorite sports announcer is Al Michaels: Michaels was one of the leading national announcers at the time.
Favorite players as a kid were Mark Fidrych and Dale Murphy: Smoltz lived in Michigan, and was nine years old and just getting into baseball when Fidrych burst on the scene.  He even saw Fidrych pitch in person at Tiger Stadium. Smoltz got to play with Murphy when he was with the Braves.
Might have been a musician if he hadn’t been an athlete: Smoltz’s parents were accordion players.
Pet peeve is taxes: I wonder what he thinks of the tax-funded ballparks the Braves keep getting.
Where he is now: An announcer for Fox.

  1. It's cool to hear his favorite announcer, as he is probably my current favorite announcer.
