Former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Todd Stottlemyre is headed to Regina.
On Thursday afternoon on 620 CKRM’s “Sportscage”, the Regina Red Sox announced Stottlemyre will be their guest speaker at their annual sports dinner on Saturday, April 28 at the Turvey Centre.
Stottlemyre was a key cog in the rotation for both of the Blue Jays World Championship teams in 1992 & 1993.
In a career that spanned 15 years, Stottlemyre pitched for five teams including the Toronto Blue Jays, Oakland A’s, St. Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers and finishing off with Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix where he resides to this day.
Stottlemyre amassed over 1500 strikeouts and won nearly 150 Major League games.
In 2000, Stottlemyre was awarded both the Lou Gehrig award and Branch Richey award by Major League Baseball, which is given to a Major Leaguer for their exemplary contributions in philanthropy and community involvement.
Upon his retirement in 2002, Stottlemyre became heavily involved in stock market trading and went on to own his own hedge fund.
Stottlemyre is part of many multi-level marketing companies and has become an award winning keynote speaker and author.
