Trevor Hoffman

Transitioning from an infielder to a pitcher, despite having just one kidney and a fading fastball, Trevor Hoffman became one of baseball's most accomplished closers. Over his 18-year career in Major League Baseball from 1993 to 2011, Hoffman played for the Florida Marlins, San Diego Padres, and Milwaukee Brewers, with the majority of his tenure spent with the Padres. In 2011, the Padres paid tribute to Hoffman's contributions by retiring his jersey number, 51, a distinction shared by only a handful of players in Padres history and Jackie Robinson.

A California native, Hoffman has been actively involved in his community since his days with the Padres, supporting charitable causes such as the National Kidney Foundation, Rady Children’s Hospital, and various community and military outreach programs.
