Former Second Baseman for the Minnesota Twins
Chuck Knoblauch Biography
Chuck Knoblauch was born July 7, 1968 in Houston, Texas and is a retired Major League Baseball player. He played all or part of twelve seasons in the majors, from 1991 until 2002, for the Minnesota Twins (1991-97), New York Yankees (1998-2001) and Kansas City Royals (2002). He played mostly as a second baseman before moving to left field for his last two seasons.
Knoblauch's arrival in New York was greeted with wide anticipation. Buster Olney, then with the New York Times and now one of ESPN's premier baseball analysts, predicted that Knoblauch and Derek Jeter would form the greatest double play combination in history. Though he struggled early on with the team, he hit a career-high 17 home runs as the Yankees won a then-American League record 114 games. In the postseason against the Cleveland Indians, Knoblauch committed a serious blunder, arguing with an umpire as play continued. Instead of chasing down the ball that was in play, Knoblauch argued with the umpire as Enrique Wilson scored from first base, giving Cleveland a 2-1 lead in the 12th inning. The Indians would go on to win the game 4-1. A New York newspaper called him "Blauch-head." However, Knoblauch recovered and was an important factor in the World Series victory over the San Diego Padres. The Yankees won the American League pennant every year he was with the team, winning three World Series championships.
A four-time All-Star, in his career Knoblauch batted .289 with 98 home runs and 615 runs batted in. He stole 25 or more bases in 10 of his 12 seasons, finishing with 407 in his career - including 276 with the Twins, the most for the team since its move from Washington in 1961.
