Steve Garvey

Cancer Survivor; Former Professional Baseball Player; 10-Time MLB All-Star, World Series Champion & National League MVP

Steve Garvey Biography

Steven Patrick Garvey is an American former professional baseball player. He played in Major League Baseball as a first baseman, most notably for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Nicknamed "Mr. Clean" because of his wholesome image during his career in baseball, Garvey was the 1974 National League Most Valuable Player Award winner, a two-time National League Championship Series MVP (1978 and 1984), a 10-time All-Star, and a two-time MVP of the All-Star Game (1974 and 1978). He holds the National League record for consecutive games played (1,207).

Garvey spent eight years as the cornerstone of the Los Angeles Dodgers "fabulous four" infield that included Davey Lopes, Bill Russell, and Ron Cey. To this day he holds the esteemed title as the longest standing and most successful infield in Major League Baseball's history, leading the Dodgers to a World Series title in 1981. 2003 marked the 30th Anniversary of "The Infield" and Garvey, Russell, Lopes and Cey celebrated the milestone all year long with special appearances.

The magic did not change when Garvey signed with the San Diego Padres. In 1984 he brought the Padres from the brink of playoff destruction and elimination from the Playoffs with a dramatic, game winning home run which took the Padres their first World Series.

He holds the record for the highest career fielding percentage by a first baseman and is the only player in the history of baseball to have an errorless season at first base. In 1988 his #6 was retired by the San Diego Padres.

To only focus on Garvey's baseball accomplishments would leave out a lifetime of achievements as a businessman, philanthropist, volunteer and most importantly a devoted family man. As a father of seven children Garvey understands that in the ever-changing world we live in there is a great necessity of being a man of honor, integrity and quality.

Giving back to the community is an important Garvey trademark. He succeeded Frank Sinatra as the National Campaign Chairman of the Multiple Sclerosis Society and serves on the Board of Directors for the UCLA Division of Neurosurgery and was part of the effort to bring the famous Guatemalan conjoined twins to UCLA Medical Center where they were separated. Garvey serves on the Board of Directors for 'B.A.T', (Baseball Assistance Team) which provides services and financial aide for former MLB players and their families.

He volunteers his time and assists in causes such as the Special Olympics, Juvenile Diabetes, The Blind Children Center, The Sisters of Carondelet, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, the ALS Foundation (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Garvey holds or has held positions on numerous civic committees and corporate boards, including the Retenitis Pigmentosa Foundation, he has served on the board of Catholic University of America, University of San Diego, The Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation and the Alzheimer's Foundation. It is this dedication and generosity that has earned him numerous awards, including the Lou Gehrig Award for his Contribution to Baseball and Society and Major League Baseball's highest honor for humanitarian service, The Roberto Clemente Award.

Garvey was also recognized by the United States Jaycees as "One of the Ten Outstanding Men in America" and received Little League's most prestigious honor, The "William A. (Bill) Shea Award", for contribution by a former little leaguer to our national pastime. He was also chosen as one of Disney's 30th Anniversary "American Heroes".

In the fall of 2012, Garvey underwent an operation to treat prostate cancer, and works to raise awareness for diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
