Dave Silvestri


Hall of Fame Class:

One of the greatest shortstops ever to play for the Tigers during his career from 1986-88. A native of St. Louis (Parkway Central), Silvestri was a first-team all-American in 1987 and '88, and was a member of the U.S. Olympic team that won the gold medal at the Seoul Summer Games in 1988. He was also all-Big Eight and all-District V in 1987-88, and was named to the Big Eight all-Tournament team in 1988. He appears in the top-10 of 29 all time statistical categories at MU, and his career batting average of .379 is fourth in school history. He still holds 10 game, season or career records for the Tigers. Drafted by the Houston Astros, he's played at the major league level with the New York Yankees, Montreal Expos and his current team, the Texas Rangers. His first National League hit was a run-scoring pinch-hit single against his hometown St. Louis Cardinals, at Busch Stadium, in 1995.
