He threw his hands up in the air as teammates surrounded him. The sign in the outfield finally moved from #599 to #600.
Trevor Hoffman earned his 600th save last night in Milwaukee.
What can I say about Trevor? He’s one of my all-time favorite players. He’s one of the most classy players to ever step on a major league baseball field. Best of all, he’s a Padre.
I am just soooo happy for him!!! He so deserves this. He’s an incredible player and an incredible person. I love him so much and I miss him like crazy.
Though it was a very happy moment to watch him get that 600th save, it was also very sad because he wasn’t doing it in San Diego. This is his home, not Milwaukee. He doesn’t belong there. He belongs here.
But it’s reassuring to know that wherever he goes, Trevor will always, always be a Padre.
Congrats, Trevor, on save #600. Your whole career has been absolutely amazing and you’ve created quite the legacy for youself. You’re the all-time saves leader! Great work, Trev. You’re an inspiration to many people, including myself.
I still hope that someday you’ll be able to pitch in one more game as a Padre. I miss Trevor Time. No matter what, though, you are forever a Padre. I love you Trevor.
GO TREVOR HOFFMAN!!! FOREVER A PADRE!!!!
Today is Trevor Hoffman’s 42nd birthday. Wow. That dude is getting old!! But man, he’s still pitching extremely well, and I’m sure he’ll get at least 600 saves. Hopefully he will also get a couple more in a Padres uniform too.
Well, Trevor, we missed you a lot in San Diego this season. There was something missing when we went into Spring Training and the season. Heath Bell was able to do a great job in your place, but “Blow Me Away” is just not as good as “Hell’s Bells.” I can’t wait to see you back in a Padres uniform, Trevor. I hope you have a great birthday. We love you!!!
GO TREVOR HOFFMAN!!!
