Axford began his professional baseball career in 2005, playing for the Melville Millionaires of the Western Major Baseball League. His strong performance caught the attention of the New York Yankees, and they signed him as an amateur free agent in 2006. He debuted in Major League Baseball (MLB) on September 7, 2009, as a relief pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers. Axford's fastball and curveball made him a dominant pitcher in the National League (NL), earning him the "Rolaids Relief Man of the Year Award" in 2011 for his 46 saves with a 1.95 ERA. He also represented Canada in the 2013 World Baseball Classic tournament.

Over his 11-year long career, Axford played for several teams, including the Cleveland Indians, Colorado Rockies, Oakland Athletics, and Toronto Blue Jays. He finished his career with a 38-34 win-and-loss record, a 3.89 ERA, and 144 saves in 543 games. After retiring from MLB in 2019, Axford started working as a studio analyst for the Blue Jays' television broadcasts. In 2021, Axford made a remarkable comeback to MLB, signing a minor league contract with the Brewers, the team where he began his career. Axford's passion for baseball and his dedication to this sport made him one of the best relief pitchers in MLB history. Read even more about John Axford at Wikipedia
