Debuting with the Milwaukee Brewers in 1974 at the age of eighteen, Robin Yount would spend twenty years playing for the Brew Crew. He batted greater than .300 six times, including a .331 season in 1982 when he won the first of two MVP awards (1989 was the other). He led the Brewers to within a game of the 1982 Championship, hitting an incredible .414 with 6 RBIs in the seven games of the Series. After his rookie season, he never played in fewer than 122 games over his long career, and placed himself firmly in the record books along the way. He is still the Milwaukee leader in home runs, RBIs, hits, runs and stolen bases. He is in the top twenty on the all time list in games (2856), hits (3142), doubles (583), and in the top ten in at bats (11,008) and sac flies (123).
