David Eckstein Biography
Former World Series MVP with the Cardinals, David Eckstein was born January 20, 1975 in Sanford, Florida and currently plays with the Toronto Blue Jays. He is noted for his size, as he is a small, for professional sports at 5' 7, but weighs 175 pounds.
Eckstein was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 19th round of the 1997 amateur draft, and selected off waivers by the Anaheim Angels on August 16, 2000. He was a member of the 2002 World Series champion Anaheim Angels (now the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), as well as the 2006 Champions, the St. Louis Cardinals, where he was selected 2006 World Series MVP. However, in several post-Series interviews, Eckstein said that he cannot use his prize, a Chevrolet Corvette Z06, because he does not know how to drive a manual transmission. He gave the car to his brother Rick. During his 2002 championship year, he led the major leagues with three grand slams, including grand slams in back-to-back games against the Toronto Blue Jays, one of which was a walk-off grand slam leading the Angels to complete the sweep over Toronto, at a time when the Angels were 7-14. After the sweep of the Jays, the Angeles went on to win 20 of their next 23 games. The walk-off Grand Slam is seen as a turning point in the 2002 season for the Angels, propelling them to a World Series title.
As a member of the 2006 World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals, Eckstein was named the World Series MVP. Following a 1-11 start in the first 2 games of the World Series, Eckstein went 8 for 22 with 4 RBI and scored 3 runs in the series, including going 4-for-5 with three doubles in game 4.
