Dave Winfield Tribute

Tribute To Dave Winfield

Dave in happier times.

Dave Winfield played for six major-league teams in his illustrious, 23-year career but he made his name with the Yankees. Probably the best fielder the Yankees had in years. He could climb the wall with the best of them. No matter if it was left or right or on a rare occassion center, Dave always gave his 100%. He became the 19th player in big-league history to collect 3,000 hits, finishing his career with 3,110 hits, and 465 homers. Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Stan Musial, Carl Yastrzemski and Eddie Murray are the only other players to record 3,000 hits and 400-plus homers. Winfield drove in 100 or more runs eight times and ranks 11th all-time in RBIs with 1,833. He ranks 14th in hits and 19th in home runs. So in our little way this tribute is for Dave Winfield. Boy did he look good in pinstripes.
