    Come to the MEETING SPOT for Sports Talk with baseball Hall of Famer, Dave Winfield. Hailed as one of the greatest athletes ever to play professional sports, he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001, voted MVP of the 1973 College World Series, and made history as the only athlete ever to be drafted in three professional sports: basketball (Atlanta Hawks and Utah Stars), football (Minnesota Vikings) and baseball (San Diego Padres).  Do not miss your chance to meet him! Bring your questions to the Sports Talk and then join us at the Opening Reception for a signed baseball!

    Speaker(s)

    Dave Winfield

    Dave Winfield has been hailed as one of the greatest athletes ever to play professional sports. One of only seven players in the history of baseball to reach over 3,000 hits and belt over 450 home runs, the 12-time All-Star is amongst the all-time leaders in hits, home runs and RBI. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001 -- his first year of eligibility. Winfield began his career as a Williams Scholar and pitcher at the University of Minnesota, where he was voted MVP of the 1973 College World Series. He made history as the only athlete ever to be drafted in three professional sports: basketball (Atlanta Hawks and Utah Stars), football (Minnesota Vikings) and baseball (San Diego Padres). 

    His professional career took off in 1973 when he joined the San Diego Padres – without having played a single minor league game. His next stop: 8 All-Star seasons with the New York Yankees. In 1990, he joined the California Angels, followed by a magical year with the Toronto Blue Jays where he drove in the winning run of the 1992 World Series.  Dave returned to his native Minnesota and reached the 3,000th hit milestone with the Twins. He ended his 22-year career after the 1995 season with the American League Champion Cleveland Indians. 

    Winfield’s tradition of winning with flair goes well beyond the world of sports… into a rich spectrum of philanthropy and business. While batting his way to Cooperstown,  Dave was one of the first athletes to create a charitable foundation – and inspired many of today’s athletes to do the same. For over 20 years, the Winfield Foundation provided healthcare services, nutritional counseling, scholarships and computer literacy programs to deserving high school students, holiday dinners to families in need, and community outreach programs in and beyond the 6 major league cities he called home.  Dave developed TURN IT AROUND!, an international community action campaign to prevent substance abuse. The program’s innovative audio/visual and print materials for elementary school children were recognized as exceptionally potent tools in the war on drugs.

    Dave’s charitable work has earned him numerous honors, including: the YMCA Brian Piccolo Award for Humanitarian Service, the first Branch Rickey Community Service Award, American League Joe Cronin Award, Josh Gibson Leadership Award and Major League Baseball’s Roberto Clemente Award, presented to the player who best exemplifies baseball on and off the field. He was also awarded honorary Doctorate of Laws from both Syracuse University and Thomas Jefferson School of Law, and was selected one of America’s 10 Outstanding Young Men.  A successful entrepreneur, Winfield has owned art galleries and Burger King restaurants. He has served on the boards of President Clinton’s National Service Program, Morehouse School of Medicine, Hackensack Medical Center, Century Council, Authentify, Inc. and on the advisory boards of the Major League Baseball Players Trust and the Peace Corps. A long-time member of the board of the San Diego Padres, Dave also served as an Executive Vice  President/Senior Advisor of the ball club. He currently serves as a special assistant to the Major league Baseball Player’s Association.
