Did you know that Gary Sheffield is only of the few major league ballplayers who played in both a Little League World Series & Major League World Series during his career?

Did you know that when Gary Sheffield joined the 500 Home Runs Club , on April 17, 2009 , he was the first player to reach the milestone with a pinch-hit home run, and the first player whose 500th career homer was the first home run hit with a new team (Sheff had been released by the Detroit Tigers in March 2009, then signed by the New York Mets just twelve days before).

When Gary Sheffield won a batting title in 1992 , with the San Diego Padres , he became the only Friar not named Tony Gwynn to win a batting championship ! Sheff won his first of five Silver Sluggers that year, four while roaming both American and National League outfields, this one at the hot corner - making Sheffield the first Padre to win a Silver Slugger at third base.

Orestes Destrade hit twenty homers with the (inaugural) 1993 Florida Marlins , setting the single season franchise record for home runs. In 1994, Gary Sheffield broke The Big O's record after launching twenty-seven homers. Two years later (in 1996), Sheff crushed his own record, hitting forty-two home runs, a still-standing Marlins single season record!
