Kirby Puckett Captured 6 Silver Slugger Trophies
The Silver Slugger award is given to the best hitters from each league by position. And while the official calculation has never been ‘offered’ up as to how the award is decided upon, the prize usually goes to the most well-rounded hitters in the sport.
Kirby Puckett won six Silver Slugger awards for being one of the three best hitting outfielders in the American League.
What is most impressive about this is that the six awards did not come in six straight years. Kirby brought home the trophy during the ’86, ’87, ’88, ’89, ’92, and ’94 baseball seasons.
Kirby was a worker – always trying to stay or get back to the top – just the kind of quality that this baseball fan respects the most!!!
