Todd Mathew Hollandsworth (born April 20, 1973) is an American former professional baseball outfielder. He played in Major League Baseball (MLB) with the Los Angeles Dodgers (1995-2000), Colorado Rockies (2000-2002), Texas Rangers (2002), Florida Marlins (2003), Chicago Cubs (2004-2005), Atlanta Braves (2005), Cleveland Indians (2006), and Cincinnati Reds (2006). He was the National League Rookie of the Year with the Dodgers in 1996.
Hollandsworth was born in Dayton, Ohio, and graduated from Newport High School in Bellevue, Washington, in 1991. He was drafted in the third round of the 1991 Major League Baseball Draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers out of high school.
Hollandsworth made his major league debut on April 25, 1995 at the age of 22 for the Dodgers. He was named the 1996 National League Rookie of the Year when he led all NL rookies that season in hits, doubles, home runs, runs batted in, and stolen bases in 149 games. His award was the fifth consecutive Rookie of the Year award for the Dodgers, an MLB record. Hollandsworth was a member of the 2003 World Series Champion Florida Marlins. The Braves acquired him on August 29, 2005, from the Cubs, for minor league pitchers Todd Blackford and Angelo Burrows.
During the 2008 baseball season, Todd was a regular contributor to Comcast Sports Net Chicago commenting on the Chicago Cubs baseball season. In 2009, he was named the pre-and-post-game analyst for CSN Chicago's Cubs telecasts alongside David Kaplan, a gig he would hold until the end of the 2016 season.
On December 22, 2016, it was announced that Hollandsworth would be the color commentator for Miami Marlins games on Fox Sports Florida starting in 2017, pairing up with play-by-play announcer Rich Waltz.
