Todd attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) and during his time there, would play baseball with the university’s team. He then joined the 1985 MLB Draft, and was the third overall pick by the Toronto Blue Jays. Prior to joining the MLB, he was well noted for good control of his pitches and a very strong fastball, however, reports stated that he had trouble changing speeds and that skill was not part of his repertoire. He would play with the Blue Jays but would not really get noticed until he helped the Blue Jays win the 1992 World Series; his success with the team would start to increase his net worth significantly. He would help the Blue Jays once again the following year at the 1993 World Series against the Philadelphia Phillies.
However, he had controversy during the fourth game of the World Series which even prompted Mayor Ed Rendell to ridicule him. Despite that, the Blue Jays would win and Todd expressed his displeasure with the mayor.
In 1995, he transferred to the Oakland Athletics for a year, before joining the St. Louis Cardinals. There he spent three seasons, and would then move to play with the Texas Rangers. His final years in the MLB was spent with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
While he was still playing, Stottlemyre developed a strong interest in the stock market and had a family friend manage his stock portfolio. During his last seasons with the Diamondbacks, he really started focusing on trading due to his injuries and imminent retirement from the sport. After retiring, he then worked as a stock market analyst for Merrill Lynch, and his net worth continued to increase significantly. He realized he was good at trading, and began day trading, eventually leading him to found his own hedge fund. In 2010, Stottlemyre became a member of the multi-level marketing company ICN Inc, and the Platinum Regional Vice President of the Company. He also serves on the board of directors of several companies.
For his personal life, it is known that Todd is married to Erica, and they have five children. In 1994, he was arrested alongside Blue Jays teammate Dave Steward for resisting arrest and battery on a law enforcement officer. According to reports, the issue was because Todd refused to pay a cover fee at a nightclub.
