Keith Hernandez 1988 Donruss Baseball’s Best

By the time that the 1988 baseball season rolled around, the New York Mets were two years removed from their World Series championship, and the while still primarily in tact was hardly playing championship caliber baseball.

As for Keith Hernandez, 1988 would be the final season in which he would capture a Gold Glove Award.  He played in just 95 games that season, but he still managed to be tagged as the best defensive first baseman in the National League.  In 95 games, Hernandez recorded 734 put-outs and 77 assists while making just two errors.  He helped turn 63 double plays in 1988 and compiled an amazing .998 fielding percentage!!

  1. Im starting to think he should be in the HOF.

    • McGee-Fan51, Defensively, he deserves consideration as he was one of the best defensive first baseman in baseball history. But offensively, he cannot compare to the first-tier or second-tier Hall of Fame first basemen.
