Biography

Jason Giambi was a first baseman and designated hitter who played in the Major Leagues from 1995-2014. He started with the Oakland Athletics from 1995-2001, but he is best known for his seven years with the New York Yankees (2002-08). Giambi returned to the A’s in 2009, and was then traded to the Colorado Rockies (2009-12), before finishing his career in 2013-14 with the Cleveland Indians. He had a lifetime batting average of .280 and hit 431 home runs, with 1,411 RBI.

Giambi was a five-time All-Star, being named to the game in 2000-04, and he won the Home Run Derby at the All-Star Game in 2002. He was the American League MVP in 2000, and was named the American League Comeback Player of the Year in 2005. He also won the Silver Slugger Award for the American League in 2001 and 2002.

During grand jury investigations into the BALCO (Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative) scandal, Giambi admitted to the use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), specifically anabolic steroids, for which he later publically apologized. His brother, Jeremy Giambi, also played major league baseball from 1998-2003, as an outfielder and first baseman with the Kansas City Royals, Oakland A’s, Philadelphia Phillies, and Boston Red Sox.
