Major league career

From 1994-96 Knoblauch batted .312, .333, and .341, won the AL Gold Glove Award at second base in 1997, and became renowned for his speed--stealing over 40 bases in three consecutive seasons. After the 1997 season, Knoblauch was traded to the Yankees in exchange for four players (including two future All-Stars, Eric Milton and Cristian Guzman) and $3 million. Once a popular player in Minnesota, his very outspoken request to be traded away from the Twins ensured he would be roundly jeered on every successive trip to the Metrodome. This jeering included the throwing of hot dogs, beer bottles and golf balls at Knoblauch during a visit to the Metrodome in 2001.

Knoblauch's arrival in New York was greeted with wide anticipation, with one New York Times writer openly predicting that he and Derek Jeter would form the greatest double play combination in history.[2] Though he struggled early on with the team, he hit a career-high 17 home runs as the Yankees won a then-American League record 114 games. In the postseason against the Cleveland Indians, Knoblauch committed a serious blunder, arguing with an umpire as play continued. Instead of chasing down the ball that was in play, Knoblauch argued with the umpire as Enrique Wilson scored from first base, giving Cleveland a 2-1 lead in the 12th inning. The Indians would go on to win the game 4-1. A New York newspaper called him "Blauch-head."[3] However, Knoblauch recovered and was an important factor in the World Series victory over the San Diego Padres. The Yankees won the American League pennant every year he was with the team, winning three World Series championships.

Throwing troubles

Once considered one of the game's best fielders (in fact, ESPN personalities nicknamed him "Fundamentally Sound" Chuck Knoblauch), Knoblauch's play deteriorated shortly into his Yankee career. In 1999 he began to have difficulty making accurate throws to first base, a condition sometimes referred to in baseball as "the yips" or "Steve Blass Disease". By 2000, the problem had grown serious enough that he began seeing more playing time as a designated hitter. Knoblauch tried various solutions to his problem, but his throwing would not improve. He made an unprecedented number of throwing errors, routinely sailing the ball twenty or thirty feet over the first baseman's head. (During one game, an errant throw sailed into the crowd and hit sportscaster Keith Olbermann's mother in the face.[4]) Stumping commentators, fans, and himself, Knoblauch never fully recovered his throwing accuracy. He was reassigned to left field by manager Joe Torre, never to return to his old position.

End of career

Towards the end of his career, Knoblauch's performance at the plate also grew worse, with many observers believing he was preoccupied by his fielding troubles and trying too hard to hit home runs. Knoblauch was benched in the final game of the 2001 World Series (he hit just .056), and left for Kansas City as a free agent in the offseason. Knoblauch played in just 80 games in left field for the Royals, batting a meager .210, and the team declined to offer him a new contract the following year. In 2003, having failed to gain a job with a major league team, Knoblauch announced his retirement.

Mitchell Report / Grimsley affidavit

In December of 2007, Knoblauch was included in the Mitchell Report in which it was alleged that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his career. In the Mitchell report, Brian McNamee alleges that he procured Human Growth Hormone (HGH) from Kirk Radomski for Knoblauch in 2001 when he served as the New York Yankees assistant strength coach. McNamee alleges that during the season, he injected Knoblauch 7 to 9 times with HGH. McNamee states that Knoblauch paid Radomski for the drugs through him or Jason Grimsley, and also believed that Knoblauch obtained HGH from Grimsley. Knoblauch did not respond to a request to meet with the Mitchell investigators to discuss the allegations.[5] Human growth hormone can refer to: For physiology of human growth hormone, see growth hormone. ... Jason Alan Grimsley (born August 7, 1967 in Cleveland, Texas) was best known as a professional relief pitcher. ...

On January 11, 2008, the New York Times published a rare look at Chuck Knoblauch's post-baseball life. The article painted Knoblauch's outlook on baseball and The Mitchell Report as being apathetic. As he has been retired for 5 years, he expressed "bewilderment at his inclusion" in the report and stated that "I have nothing to defend and I have nothing to hide at the same time." As of January 2008, Chuck Knoblauch owned a condominium in Houston, and a house in the Houston area, and was not interested in returning to professional baseball in any capacity.[7][8] is the 11th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) is the current year, a leap year that started on Tuesday of the Anno Domini (or common era), in accordance to the Gregorian calendar. ...


On January 22, 2008, Knoblauch was subpoenaed by the congressional committee investigating steroids in baseball after he failed to respond to an invitation to give a deposition by the January 18, 2008 deadline.[9] On January 23, the Associated Press reported that federal marshals have as yet been unable to find Knoblauch to serve him with the subpoena.[10] is the 22nd day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) is the current year, a leap year that started on Tuesday of the Anno Domini (or common era), in accordance to the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 18th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) is the current year, a leap year that started on Tuesday of the Anno Domini (or common era), in accordance to the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 23rd day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Chuck Knoblauch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (771 words)
Edward Charles "Chuck" Knoblauch (born July 7, 1968 in Houston, Texas) is an American former Major League Baseball second baseman who played for the Minnesota Twins (1991-97), New York Yankees (1998-2001) and Kansas City Royals (2002).
In the summer of 1988, Knoblauch played for the Wareham Gatemen of the Cape Cod Baseball League along with former MLB first baseman Mo Vaughn.
He was selected by the Twins in the 1st round (25th pick) of the 1989 amateur draft, and made his major league debut on April 9, 1991.
Chuck Knoblauch | BaseballLibrary.com (2118 words)
Much of Knoblauch's success was due to his ability to crowd the plate and punch pitches to right field; as his career developed, critics would occasionally note that he seemed intent on pulling the ball more in an effort to increase power.
Knoblauch's problem was reminiscent of Steve Sax's troubles a decade earlier and some reporters joked that when Knoblauch handled the ball, Tino Martinez was more a goalie than a first baseman.
Knoblauch's departure from Minnesota in 1998 had been acrimonious, but in his first trips back to the Metrodome as a second baseman he was far enough from the stands to be safe from fans' ire.
