Keith Hernandez Biography

Keith Hernandez was born October 20, 1953 in San Francisco, California and is a former Major League Baseball first baseman who played for the St. Louis Cardinals (1974-1983), New York Mets (1983-1989), and Cleveland Indians (1990). He batted and threw left-handed, and through most of his career was listed as being 6 feet tall and 195 pounds.

Hernandez grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area suburb of Pacifica, California. He was a star athlete at Terra Nova High School in Pacifica before transferring to nearby Capuchino High School, from which he graduated in 1971. One of his teammates on the Terra Nova High School baseball team was future major league pitcher Bob McClure, who had also played Little League baseball with him when they were younger. Hernandez went on to the College of San Mateo, a local community college, and was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 42nd round of the 1971 amateur draft. He made his major league debut on August 30, 1974.

Hernandez is the most prolific defensive first baseman in MLB history, winning 11 consecutive Gold Gloves at the position. Hernandez had such a strong and accurate throwing arm that, as a result, the Mets re-routed their relays through him. Due to his quick instincts, Hernandez was also able to play farther off first base than other first basemen, allowing the other infielders to play farther to their right.

After retiring, Hernandez enjoyed renewed fame by appearing as himself on the sitcom Seinfeld in the episode The Boyfriend and being involved with the episode's plot. He also made an appearance in the episode The Finale at the gang's trial. He is now a baseball analyst working for the Mets on SportsNet New York and WPIX television broadcasts.
