Jim Edmonds is known as an American former center fielder in Major League Baseball and a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest. He is most famous for playing on the Anaheim Angels, St. Louis Cardinals, San Diego Padres, and Chicago Cubs.

Background and Age

James Patrick Edmonds was born on June 27, 1970 in Fullerton, California. His family's house was in Diamond Bar, a peaceful suburb in California. Jim's grandparents and his aunties and uncles all lived in the same neighborhood. Jim was a characteristic competitor from an early age. Quick and solid, he had great deftness and ingested data rapidly. It wasn't very easy to tell whether Jim truly minded much about winning and losing. He was known to be laid-back, even by Southern California standards.

What genuinely set Jim apart in baseball was his sharp visual perception. He could get a ball in flight regardless of whether batted or tossed a half-tick before different players. As he proceeded onward to higher degrees of play, that capacity empowered him to transcend his companions. Jim had another ability that he used to the extraordinary preferred position in different sports he played, he was able to use both hands. As a child, Jim decided he would toss and bat only left-handed, so his right-handed capacity didn't have quite a bit of an effect in baseball.

Career and Net Worth

Baseball immediately formed into one of Jim's interests. He was in the perfect spot to sharpen his game. Jim was a major fan of the California Angels, who played 15 miles away in Anaheim Stadium. At the point when the group signed free agent Rod Carew in 1977, Jim wound up transfixed with the sweet-swinging lefty's logical approach to hitting. The adolescent went crazy when the Angels won their division in 1979, and he was disheartened when they bit the dust against the Baltimore Orioles in the ALCS.

Jim got his biggest break in baseball when the Cardinals signed Jim to a contract expansion. In his first at-bat after the deal was reported, he got overwhelming applause from St. Louis fans. Jim initiated a relationship with Mark McGwire, a fellow southern California kid, and the Cardinal clubhouse ended up one of the most joyful in the major groups.

Marriage, Wife and Kids

In October 2019, it was announced that Meghan King Edmonds and Jim Edmonds were getting a separation following five years of marriage. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum claimed to have had a rough relationship with the former baseball player. The most recent spat between the couple started when he went to a hockey game and she started grilling him about who he went with.
