Paul Goldschmidt-Local Celebrity

Paul “Goldy” Golschmidt was born Paul Edward Goldschmidt September 10th, 1987 in Wilmington, Delaware.

Goldschmidt grew up in the Houston suburban city of The Woodlands, Texas where Goldschmidt embarked on his baseball career at The Woodlands High school baseball team, leading them to a state championship before graduating in 2006.

Paul Goldschmidt’s star rose as his baseball play continued to blossom after earning a scholarship to play baseball for Texas State. During his time with the Texas State Bobcats, Paul Goldschmidt was twice named Southland Conference Player of the year in 2008 and 2009. During his career at Texas state, Goldschmidt posted records for home runs, doubles, walks, and RBI. It were those honors and that earned him the attention of baseball scouts from Major League Baseball.

 

Goldschmidt was eventually drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the eight round of MLB’s 2009 draft. Upon his 2009 draft, Goldschmidt was sent to the Diamondbacks minor league affiliates, collectively posting a .317 batting average and hitting over 80 home runs over a year and a half.

After leading the minor league in home runs, Goldschmidt’s star play earned him a call to the big leagues, playing his fist game for the Arizona Diamondbacks on August 1st, 2011. From there, Goldschmidt helped propel the Diamondbacks to a division title in the NL West in 2011.

Paul Goldschmidt was a star player during post season play of the Diamondbacks batting .438 with 6 RBI’s including a grand slam that lead the team to a postseason victory in the 2011 NLDS.

 

Paul Goldschmidt’s star power continued to rise after posting his first full season in 2012 playing 145 games hitting .286 with 82 RBIs, 43 doubles and 18 stolen bases.

Since his first full season in 2012, Paul Goldschmidt has earned five all star honors, three Gold Gloves, three Silver Slugger awards and has been in top 15 of MVP voting four times. Paul Goldshmidt’s Diamondback legend continues to grow, currently sitting sixth all-time on Diamondback’s home run record.

Currently, Paul lives with his college sweetheart turned wife, Amy and their two year old son in Scottsdale.
