Keith became known for his baseball skills while still in Terra Nova High School, before transferring to Capuchino High School. After matriculating in 1971, he played at San Mateo Community College for a short while, but had a bit of notoriety because of his attitude during high school. Nevertheless, he was selected in the 1971 Major League Baseball Draft by the St. Louis Cardinals.

Hernandez played in the minor leagues for a while, and started to show his prowess after being promoted to the Tulsa Oilers in 1973. After a good season, he debuted in the major leagues the following year against the San Francisco Giants. Despite having good statistics in some areas, he had difficulty adjusting to the pitching of the Major Leagues, and spent time in between the Cardinals and Oilers. He started improving his batting though he was already considered one of the best fielders in the team. He eventually became a star batter, and would go on to become the National League’s Most Valuable Player. Since then, he was considered as one of the best players in the National League, helping the Cardinals win the 1982 World Series against the Milwaukee Brewers. The following years, Hernandez was traded to the New York Mets in 1983 after multiple disagreements with the staff of the Cardinals.

During this time the Mets struggled to get victories, but Hernandez helped the team to a winning record in 1984. Surrounded by younger players, he became Captain of the Mets and helped improve the team dramatically. Eventually the Mets would start a rivalry with Keith’s former team the Cardinals, and the teams would race to become the top team of the league. In 1986, Hernandez efforts would pay off with another World Series win, against the Boston Red Sox.

During the span of his career, he would win 11 Gold Gloves, the final of which was awarded in 1988. Eventually his numbers started decreasing as he aged and succumbed to injuries, after his contract, played with the Cleveland Indians in 1990 before retiring.

After retirement, he would go on and write books. He was also given acting opportunities in films and television shows such as “Seinfeld”, “Law & Order”, “The Yards”, and “The Scout”. He became an analyst for SNY and WPIX in 2006, earning popularity because of his commentary style.

For his personal life, Keith has been married to Kai since 2005, having been married to Susan from whom he divorced in 1987. He has become very popular because of his blunt personality that’s mixed in with humor and irony. This is often observed during his broadcasts as a baseball analyst. Aside from these, Keith’s mustache is also considered an icon in the sports industry and he even shaved it as a part of charity.

1[on the passing of Elaine Kaufman] She's the one who prodded me to get going when I retired. She told me that I was too talented to sit on my duff and not do anything. I was shocked, because all our conversations before had been social and friendly. But this was like a mother to her son: 'Get off your lazy butt and do something! Don't let this go to waste!'

2His father helped him out of a batting slump during the 1985 season by watching all his at-bats and observing that, when he was hitting well, his father could see the entire number "17" on his back when he started his swing. If he only saw the "7", that meant that Keith was bailing out on his swing.
