Tony Fernandez Stats

"(Tony) Fernandez has collected the most hits in franchise history but more importantly, he is a great man. As a shortstop, he could exhilarate crowds with acrobatic plays and a clutch bat. A fitness fiend, Fernandez was an athlete’s athlete and indirectly helped the Jays reach the 92 World Series as part of the trade package that brought in Roberto Alomar and Joe Carter ." - Sportswriter Scott Carson in Positions of Power: Sportsnets baseball panel discuss the greatest Jays to play the Game (Dan Zaiontz, Source )

Did you know that when the truly smooth-fielding Tony Fernandez led the American League in games played at shortstop (163 in 1986)), putouts at shortstop (294), and fielding percentage at shortstop (983), he won his first (of four consecutive) Gold Gloves at Shortstop - the first (and to date only) Toronto Blue Jays ' shortstop to receive the top fielding honor?

Did you know that Tony Fernandez has taken the field in a Toronto Blue Jays uniform in more games (1,450) than any player in team history? He is also the franchise leader in career hits (1,583) and triples (72).

Did you know that Tony Fernandez hit for the cycle on September 3, 1995 (he was a Bronx Bomber at the time), in Yankee Stadium , the fourteenth cycle in team history, and the second by a switch-hitting Yankee ( Mickey Mantle was first, July 23, 1957 )?

In 1986 , Tony Fernandez collected two-hundred thirteen hits, the first Blue Jays hitter to record a 200-hit season. Since Fernandez; Paul Molitor (211 hits in 1993 ), John Olerud (200 hits in 1993 ), Shannon Stewart (202 hits in 2001 ) and Vernon Wells (215 hits in 2003 ) have each put together a 200-hit season in Toronto , but to date, the only switch-hitter in that set is Fernandez.

Alfredo Griffin (in 1980), Dave Collins (in 1984) and Lloyd Moseby (in 1980) each collected a franchise record fifteen triples with Toronto . Four years after Fernandez set the franchise record for hits in a season by a switch-hitter, he had seventeen triples - a mark yet unsurpassed.
