He was affectionately known by Cardinal fans as "immy Baseball, Jimmy Ballgame, Lassie and as Hollywood.

He has also hit 30 or more home runs in five seasons, while maintaining a .285 career batting average, and has knocked in over 1,140 runs in his career.
A defining moment of Edmonds' career came in the 2004 National League Championship Series, in which Edmonds hit an extra-inning home run to win Game 6.
