Randy attended Livermore High School, where he played basketball and baseball. He recorded great statistics as a pitcher in high school, and was even drafted as a fourth round pick by the Atlanta Braves. He declined the offer and opted for a full athletic scholarship from the University of Southern California. There he played basketball and baseball, but his performance was inconsistent. He was drafted in the second round by the Montreal Expos during the 1985 MLB Draft but only made his first appearance three years later. He recorded good performances during 1988 but then went on to perform poorly the following year, so he was then traded to the Seattle Mariners as a result.
With the Mariners, he improved considerably, and started to lead the League in walks and hit batsmen. By the 1990, his talents were suddenly recognized as he continued to pitch well and was giving opposing players difficulty. Thanks to coaching tips on his pitch Johnson aimed better and faster. By 1993, Johnson achieved a 19-8 record and after a great 1994 season, was awarded the American League Cy Award. By 1995 his record was at 18-2, with his 900 winning percentage the second highest in American League history. His performance with the Mariners was capped when he helped the team win a dramatic ALDS series against the Yankees. For most of 1996, he was side-lined due to an injury, but returned in 1997 with a 20-4 record, although he was then traded in 1998 to the Houston Astros.
Johnson played for the Astros for one season, ending with a 10-1 record; during the play-offs the Astros lost the 1998 NLDS to the San Diego Padres. In the following year, he was signed by the Arizona Diamondbacks to a four-year contract with an option of a fifth year, for $52.4 million – his net worth was steadily rising at this point. Randy helped the team get to the playoffs and lead the league in multiple categories, being given the NL Cy Young Award and the Warren Spahn Award as a result.
In the year 2000, the Diamondbacks acquired Curt Shilling and the two players would become the ace rotation for the team. They would go on and win the 2001 World Series against the New York Yankees, with both Johnson and Schilling earning World Series Most Valuable Player Awards and Babe Ruth Awards. In 2002, Randy won the Triple Crown for a pitcher, but the following year he was injured and unable to play for most of the season. After playing in 2004 and achieving the perfect game, he was then traded to the New York Yankees where he played until 2006, before returning to the Diamondbacks and playing until 2008. In 2009, he played for the Giants and went on to achieve the 300th win milestone of his career before eventually retiring.
For his personal life, Johnson has been married to Lisa since 1993, and they have four children; he also has a daughter from a previous relationship. He resides with his family in Paradise Valley, Arizona. After retirement, Johnson became a photographer and also became the Assistant to the General Manager for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Johnson mentioned in an interview that he is a Christian.
