In keeping with the excellent defensive players that the Baltimore Orioles had in the 1960s and 1970s, Davey Johnson was a three-time Gold Glove winner (1969-71) and would also be named to three All-Stars (1968-70). 

Johnson, who first came up to Orioles in 1965, would not be the best batter in the Baltimore lineup, but he did accumulate 904 Hits with 6 Home Runs for the Orioles during his tenure there (1965-72), and he helped them win the World Series in 1966 and 1970.

Johnson would become far more successful as a Manager, as, on two occasions, he won the Manager of the Year and would helm the New York Mets to a World Series in 1986.
