Giambi played six seasons in the majors with the Athletics, Kansas City Royals, Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Red Sox. Part of his time with Oakland was spent with his brother, Jason, who was a star first baseman but later joined the New York Yankees.
He was only dealt with one blemish on his playing career. He admitted to using anabolic steroids in 2005, according to the Kansas City Star, and was named in the Mitchell Report in 2007, which detailed the use and prevalence of steroids in MLB.
