Keith Hernandez Biography »
Keith Hernandez (born October 20, 1953) is a former Major League Baseball (MLB) player who was the starting first baseman on World Series championship teams with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1982 and the New York Mets in 1986. He began his career in the majors with the Cardinals in 1974, winning the National League (NL) batting title and sharing the circuit's Most Valuable Player (MVP) honors with Willie Stargell in 1979. Hernandez was also known for his ability to hit the ball in all parts of the ballpark, especially the opposite way. After a midseason trade sent him to the Mets in 1983, he became the undisputed leader amongst the players of the brash ballclub that won the 1986 World Series and also fell a victory short of capturing the 1988 National League Championship Series.
