Dave Winfield shares thoughts on Hall of Fame, scouts and Padres fortunes
LOS ANGELES -- Dave Winfield was the first to be portrayed wearing a Padres cap on a Hall of Fame plaque. The Padres were Winfield's first team -- they selected him with the fourth overall pick in the 1973 Draft, and he played with them until signing with the Yankees as a free agent prior to the 1981 season. He is currently an executive vice president for the team.
Never shy about offering his opinions, Winfield recently shared his thoughts about scouts, the Hall of Fame election and the upcoming season for the Padres.
