Born in Tempe, Arizona, and a 1978 graduate of Bullard High School (Fresno, CA), Rex Hudler played baseball, soccer and football, earning first-team All-America honors as a wide receiver and a spot as a 1999 inductee into the Fresno Athletic Hall of Fame. His talent landed him 25 football scholarship offers, upon which he signed a letter of intent to play at Notre Dame. He was a first round draft pick and signed by the New York Yankees right out of high school.
During his professional baseball career (1978-1998), Hudler played 10 years in the Minor Leagues and 10 years in the Major Leagues (for 6 different teams), and additionally logged a 1993 stint in Japan.
Since 2012, Rex Hudler has teamed up with Ryan Lefebvre and formerly Steve Physioc as the Kansas City Royals television color commentator on FOX Sports Kansas City. A veteran of 36 years in professional baseball, 21 as a player, Hudler, was nicknamed “Wonder Dog” during his playing career.
Since his playing days, Hudler is an award-winning broadcaster who began his broadcasting career as a special correspondent for “Good Morning America” during the 1997 playoffs, World Series and 1998 Super Bowl. He was honored as the 2003, 2005 and 2007 Television Color Analyst by the Southern California Sports Broadcasters for his work on Angels broadcasts for KCAL and Fox Sports Net. He won an Emmy in 2004 for “Angels in the Infield.” Hudler is also featured as the color commentator alongside Jon Miller on ESPN’s 2004 MLB video game, Sega’s MLB 2K3 video game, and the 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 MLB “The Show” video games.
Hudler and his wife, Jennifer, founded Team Up for Down Syndrome to help support the Down Syndrome community nationwide. In February 2002, the Goodwill Industries of Orange County honored Hudler with the Walter Knott Service Award. The Hudlers were also awarded the 2007 Humanitarian Award by Stillpoint Resources. In 2008, they were given the Changing The World award by Chapman University.
