He played from 1983-1997 and made appearances for the Minnesota Twins, Kansas City Royals and Los Angeles Dodgers. His best years came while playing shortstop for the Twins. He was Minnesota’s starting shortstop in 1987 and 1991, both years the Twins won the World Series. His best year at the plate, however, came in 1993 while playing for the Royals. He had a career-best .280 average that season while driving in a career-high 57 runs. He also had 10 home runs and scored 66 runs.
