On January 5, 2010, he announced his retirement from professional baseball. The Mariners invited Johnson to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Seattle Mariners home opener at Safeco Field on April 12, 2010, and inducted Johnson into the Mariners Hall of Fame on January 17, 2012. The Diamondbacks invited Johnson and former teammate Curt Schilling to both throw out the ceremonial first pitches for the Arizona Diamondbacks’ recognition of the 10th anniversary of the 2001 World Series team that defeated the New York Yankees.
Johnson guest starred in The Simpsons episode “Bart Has Two Mommies”, which aired on March 19, 2006. Johnson appeared in the movie Little Big League, playing himself. He appeared in a “Just For Men” commercial where he had a grey beard and his neighbors told him “Your beard is weird.” He also appeared in a Right Guard commercial where he fired dodgeballs at Kyle Brandt, who represented odor. Johnson also appeared in several commercials for Nike in 1998.
The spots comedically portrayed him taking batting practice (swinging ineptly at balls from a pitching machine) in his hope that he would break Roger Maris’s then-single-season record for home runs. He made a cameo appearance in a commercial for MLB 2K9 with teammate Tim Lincecum. Johnson made an appearance in a GEICO insurance commercial. He has been featured as a playable character in various Backyard Baseball games. Johnson appeared in the episode “Control” on Franklin & Bash as himself.
In the prime of his career, Johnson’s fastball was clocked as high as 102 mph (164 km/h), with a low three-quarters delivery (nearly sidearm). His signature pitch was a slider that broke down and away from left-handed hitters and down and in to right-handed hitters. The effectiveness of the pitch is marked by its velocity being in the low 90s along with tight late break; hitters often believed they were thrown a fastball until the ball broke just before it crossed home plate. Right-handed hitters have swung through and missed sliders that nearly hit their back foot. Johnson dubbed his slider “Mr. Snappy”.
