Winfield has reason to smile. In his 22-season career he made the All-star team 12 times.
A consistent performer, with a likeable persona, Winfield was a fan favorite. And once he hit his stride in the big leagues, his dominant athletic ability took over and he was awarded with 12 straight All-star game appearances from 1977-1988.
What I find most amazing about this accomplishment is that during that 12-year stretch of All-star game appearances, Winfield changed team and leagues yet he was able to perform at a superior level without missing a beat.
Congratulations Dave Winfield!!!
