Selected during the first round of the 1973 amateur draft, Robin Yount went on to break Mel Ott’s 47-year-old record for most games played in the major leagues as a teenager. Yount played for the Milwaukee Brewers during his entire career, and was known for being a superior hitter. By 1980, he grew into a dominant shortstop, even surpassing the likes of Cal Ripken, Jr., Nomar Garciaparra, and Alex Rodriguez.
A three time All-Star, Yount gathered more hits during the 1980s than any other player. In 1982, he won a Gold Glove Award and an MVP award, which reinforced his finest statistical season. A Robin Yount appearance that season also helped the Brewers to their only World Series appearance, and Yount became the only player to have four hits in each of two World Series games.
In 1985, Yount moved to the outfield because of a shoulder problem, becoming a regular center fielder the following year. As an outfielder, Yount’s excellent skills enabled him to win a second MVP award, making him only the third player to win the award at two positions, as well as the first AL player to win multiple MVP’s since the early 1960s.
In 1992, Yount gathered his 3,000th career hit. In 1999, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame and was named as a finalist for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team. Yount holds a number of the Brewers’ career records including games, at-bats, runs, hits, doubles, triples, home runs, RBIs, total bases, walks, and strike outs.
