Career highlights and awards

Robert Randall Thompson (born May 10, 1962 in West Palm Beach, Florida) is a retired baseball infielder with an 11 year career from 1986 to 1996. He graduated from Forest Hill Community High School in West Palm Beach and the University of Florida.

He played his entire career with the San Francisco Giants of the National League. In 1986, he was second in voting for MLB Rookie of the Year. He played second base and shortstop. He was elected to the National League All-Star team twice (1988 and 1993). He led the National League in triples in 1989 with 11. He won the Willie Mac Award in 1991, honoring his spirit and leadership.

Thompson's best year statistically was in 1993 when he had career highs in batting average (.312), home runs (19) and RBIs (65). Late in the season that year, Thompson's cheek bone broke when he was hit by a pitch by Trevor Hoffman on September 24, 1993.[1][2] Though Thompson managed to return and play for a few more seasons, he was never able to repeat his career numbers after returning from the disabled list. He played his last game on September 22, 1996.
