Rob Wilfong

A hustling, sure-handed second baseman, Wilfong started for the Twins from 1979 to 1981, and in 1980 set an AL record for his position with a .995 fielding percentage. He was traded to the Angels with Doug Corbett for Tom Brunansky in May 1982, and remained with the Angels through 1986, usually sharing second base duties with Bobby Grich. An adept bunter and contact hitter, Wilfong’s .313 batting average, 9 HR, and 59 RBI in his first season as a regular (1979) all remained career highs.
