Steve Sax (born January 29, 1960 in Sacramento, California) is a former second baseman in Major League Baseball. He was a right-handed batter for the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox, and the Oakland Athletics.
Sax was drafted by the Dodgers in 1978 and started his career off to a good start in 1982 by earning the National League Rookie of the Year award. Throughout his career, Sax was on the All-Star team five times and had a batting average over .300 in three seasons. He had great success on the basepaths, stealing over 40 bases in six seasons for a career total of 444 stolen bases.
Steve is the brother of another former Major League Baseball player, Dave Sax, who also played for the Dodgers.
Sax was also a higher up in the Players Association during his career. He controversially opined that major league players shouldn't speak to or assist anyone who was a replacement player during the 1994 baseball strike and later joined a club when the strike had ended. He also opined that such players should be denied pensions by the union.
