We are saddened to share the news that John Smoltz’s father, John Adam Smoltz, died earlier today. John took time during tonight’s broadcast to remember his father and look back on the memories they shared together.

John Smoltz’s original job may have been the best in terms of having time to play golf, but his current job is not far behind.

I ended up being turned away!”
