Career Highlights: Trevor Hoffman, recognized as one of major league baseball’s all-time great closers, was the first player to reach the 500 and 600-save milestones, and was the all-time saves leader from 2006 to 2011. An 18-year MLB veteran, Hoffman pitched for the Florida Marlins, San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers, including more than 15 years with the Padres. A seven-time All-Star, he retired as the all-time saves leader with 601 (since broken by Mariano Rivera). Hoffman dominated his position with incredible longevity over almost two decades from 1993 to 2010. His nine seasons of 40 or more saves are the most all time. Hoffman had 12 seasons with at least 37 saves and 13 seasons with an ERA under 3.00, finishing his career with a 2.87 ERA and 1,133 strikeouts in 1,035 games pitched. Hoffman, twice the runner-up for the Cy Young Award, was a two-time National League Rolaids Relief Man of the Year and saves leader (1998 & 2006). He retired with an MLB record of fifteen 20-save seasons, fourteen 30-save seasons (including eight consecutive), nine 40-save seasons and the highest career strikeout rate of any reliever.
