Encyclopedia > Jason Schmidt

Jason David Schmidt (born January 29, 1973 in Lewiston, Idaho) is a Major League Baseball pitcher who currently plays for the San Francisco Giants. Before arriving in San Francisco during the 2001 season, Schmidt pitched for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Atlanta Braves.


Career Highlights

Schmidt helped the Braves win the World Series in 1995 even though he only pitched in nine games the entire season. The Braves were also National League champions in 1996, but Jason was traded to the Pirates before his former club played and lost in the World Series to the New York Yankees.


As a member of the Pirates, Schmidt won 10, 11, and 13 games in 1997, 1998, and 1999, respectively. However, he was on a losing team each season in Pittsburgh. He was then acquired by the Giants in 2001 where he saw more success. Between his two stints in Pittsburgh and San Francisco during the 2001 season, Schmidt compiled 13 wins. He won 13 again in 2002 when the Giants made a World Series appearance, but lost to the Anaheim Angels. In 2003, he won a career-high 17 games, but his team lost once again in the playoffs, this time to the Florida Marlins. Jason was an All-Star this year as well as the league leader with a 2.34 earned run average.


On May 18, 2004, Jason Schmidt pitched a one-hitter against the Chicago Cubs and Kerry Wood. The Giants won the game, 1-0. This performance was overshadowed by Randy Johnson's perfect game the same day.
