With surprising speed, great footwork, and a gun of an arm, Dave Winfield was a dominant outfielder.
His ability to track balls down and get to plays that few could reach made Winfield stand out as a defensive star. His long legs certainly helped him reach balls quickly while in the field. And his amazingly strong and accurate arm stopped most base runners from extending hits for extra bases when ‘Big Dave’ was in the outfield.
During his career, Winfield collected 7 Gold Glove trophies. He retired with a fielding percentage of .982 and had an amazing 166 assists.
