Stats w/ Twins: .281/.337/.377, 96 R, 29 2B, 7 3B, and 28 SB per 162 games
Nicknamed Mr. Versatility, César Tovar was only the second player in MLB history to play all nine positions in a single game.
Though Tovar never won an award or All-Star selection, he led the AL in several categories over the course of his career. Tovar commonly finished in the top five in H, R, 1B, 3B, SB, HBP and AB/SO among AL hitters. On defense, Tovar finished in the top-10 for CF and RF related stats most years, as well.
During his eight years as a Twins player, Mr. Versatility was an important part of the ALCS runs of 1969 and 1970. Tovar finished in the top-20 for AL MVP votes both of those seasons.
Despite not winning MVP, Tovar also made several rare feats as a Minnesota Twin. He broke up two no hitters, is only one of eight Twins to hit for the cycle and one of four MLB players to achieve it with a walk-off home run, stole home three times and was regarded as the fourth most competitive ball player by Sport Magazine in 1971.
To commemorate Tovar's contribution to the Twins, he was named one of the 50 Greatest Twins in 2010.
