One of baseball's most popular and durable players, Steve Garvey is known to even the most casual of baseball fans. A 10-time All Star and 1974 National League MVP, Garvey starred for the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres. Garvey was nicknamed the "Iron Man" for setting the National League consecutive games record with 1,207 straight.
Overall, Garvey garnered four Gold Glove Awards for defensive excellence; had 200 or more hits in six seasons; batted.393 in ten All-Star Games on his way to twice winning the prestigious All Star Game MVP Award (1974, 1978) and was named NL Playoff MVP. Garvey posted remarkable career numbers with a .294 batting average and a .996 fielding percentage at first base, a Major League Baseball record. Garvey also played 193 consecutive, errorless games at first base, yet another MLB record, and is the only player in the history of baseball to have played an errorless season at the position.
For eight years, Steve Garvey was the cornerstone of the "Fabulous Four" infield of the Los Angeles Dodgers that also included Davey Lopes, Bill Russell and Ron Cey. The "Fabulous Four" infield and the arm of Fernando Valenzuela brought the Dodgers a World Series Championship in 1981.
The most dramatic moment of Garvey's career was his game-winning home run in the ninth inning of the pivotal Game Four of the 1984 NL Championship Series. The blast beat the Chicago Cubs and ultimately propelled the Padres to its first ever National League Pennant and World Series appearance. Garvey was named NL Playoff MVP for the third time in his career (1974, 1977). On April 18, 1988, the Padres retired Garvey's #6 jersey.
Giving back to the community has always been an important trademark of Garvey. He succeeded Frank Sinatra as the National Campaign Chairman of the Multiple Sclerosis Society and has served on the Board of Directors for the UCLA Division of Neurosurgery and also for 'B.A.T', (Baseball Assistance Team). Garvey also volunteers his time and assists in causes such as the Special Olympics, Juvenile Diabetes, The Blind Children Center, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, the ALS Foundation (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and The Sisters of Carondelet. It is this devotion and generosity that has earned him numerous awards, including the prestigious Lou Gehrig Award and The Roberto Clemente Award, baseball's highest honor for humanitarian service.
Garvey has been a spokesman for an impressive list of corporations like Pepsi-Cola, Chevrolet, Gillette, McDonald's, Adidas,, Nestle, TransAmerica, Anheuser-Busch, Jockey, Cardservice International, John Hancock and Team Nabisco in association with Wal-Mart.
