At age 54, David Justice is still best known for his career with the Atlanta Braves that spanned from 1989-1996.
Since then, he has somewhat faded into obscurity.
Many wonder what David Justice is up to now.
Let’s start at the pinnacle of his fame in the mid 1990s with the Atlanta Braves.
David Justice is directly responsible for the Atlanta Braves one and only World Series Championship ring in 1995.
HIs 6th inning solo home run is all the offense the Braves needed to win Game 6 of the 1995 World Series by the score of 1-0.
This capped off a love-hate relationship Justice had with the Braves fans.
To be fair, he started the rift with fans by implying they were not as passionate and supportive as the fans of the Cleveland Indians, the Braves opponent in that World Series.
All was forgiven after the World Series winning home run when Justice said this:
“The fans proved me wrong. They were gems tonight.”
Ironically 2 short years later Justice was dealt to the Indians where he played for 3 seasons.
He made stops in New York (Yankees) and Oakland before retiring in 2002.
Justice played on contenders following the Braves, but that 1995 World Series title is the only one he won.
He is a member of the Atlanta Braves Hall of Fame Class of 2007.
Following his retirement from playing the game, David Justice worked in broadcasting.
Justice’s broadcasting career spanned 5 years with ESPN and YES Network (New York Yankees) through the 2007 season.
David Justice’s first marriage happened while he was playing with the Braves.
He married actress Halle Berry in 1993; the couple divorced in 1997.
Berry filed a restraining order against Justice and alleged domestic abuse.
Justice’s second marriage is sweeter and more successful.
He married Rebecca Villalobos in 2001.
Justice and Villalobos have three children; David Jr., Dionisio, and Raquel.
His oldest son known as J.R. is a wide receiver who was recruited by San Diego State as part of the 2017 class.
He has since transferred out of that program and listed as an enrolled member of Palomar College.
In high school J.R. played quarterback, wide receiver and cornerback.
Justice’s second son, Dionisio also known as DJ, is a high school senior.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, he committed to playing football as a wide receiver at UCLA.
In addition to UCLA, DJ received offers from Auburn, Miami, and Penn State.

16 year old Raquel has the acting bug.
She has been working for years in front of the camera.
Raquel’s on-screen debut came as a 12 year old in 2016 on the ABC series Recovery Road.
She followed that up with appearances on Nickelodeon’s series Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn.
Character In Moneyball Movie
Actor Stephen Bishop portrayed David Justice in the 2011 movie Moneyball.
The movie depicts the Oakland Athletics 2002 baseball team and its GM Billy Bean’s statistical method of recruiting talent that has revolutionized baseball recruiting.
David Justice now lives a quiet life decidedly different from the brash behaviors of his playing days.
