Jimmy Wynn

Jimmy Wynn spent the first 11 years of his 15-year Major League career with Houston, the first two as a member of the Colt .45s. Despite his small frame (5'9"), Wynn boasted enormous power and a strong throwing arm, earning him the nickname "The Toy Cannon". In 11 years with Houston, he hit .255 with 228 doubles, 32 triples, 223 homers, 719 RBI and an .806 OPS in 1,426 games, the majority of which were played in the pitcher-friendly Astrodome. Wynn was named to the 1967 All-Star Team after clubbing 37 home runs with 107 RBI. Wynn remains an active member in the Houston community and currently works as a community outreach executive for the club.
