Career highlights and awards

Kevin Charles Bass (born May 12, 1959 in Redwood City, California) is a former outfielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Milwaukee Brewers, Houston Astros, San Francisco Giants, New York Mets, and Baltimore Orioles.

Bass was originally drafted by the Brewers in the second round of the 1977 draft. His Major League debut was on April 9, 1982. His final Major League game was on October 1, 1995.

Bass has his best year in 1986 for an Astros team that narrowly missed playing in the World Series. Bass was named to the 1986 National League All-Star team, pacing the Astros with a .311 batting average, 22 homers, 20 steals, and sterling defensive play. Unfortunately for Bass, his career year did not have a storybook ending, as he struck out swinging with men on first and second in the 16th inning of the epic 1986 NLCS Game 6, in which the Mets beat the Astros 7-6 to advance to the 1986 World Series, which the Mets also won in dramatic fashion.

On August 3, 1987 versus the San Francisco Giants, Bass became the 15th Switch Hitter in Major League History to hit a Home Run from each side of the plate in the same game.

Two of Bass' sons were selected in the 2007 MLB Draft. Garrett (Jacksonville College) by the Washington Nationals in the 42nd round, and Justin (Clements High School) by the Los Angeles Angels in the 21st round.
