Terry Pendleton (born July 16, 1960 in Los Angeles, California) is a former third baseman in Major League Baseball who played from 1984-1998, primarily for the St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves, but also with the Florida Marlins, Cincinnati Reds, and Kansas City Royals. Pendleton is best known for winning the 1991 MVP Award in the National League; he led the NL in batting average and hits that year. He was an All-Star in 1992, and also won three Gold Glove Awards for fielding. He is currently employed as the Atlanta Braves' batting coach.
In 2004, his first year of eligibility, Pendleton received less than 5f the vote (he received one vote; the threshold was 25) from the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, thus becoming ineligible to appear on future BBWAA ballots. However, he may eventually be considered for induction into the Hall by the Veterans Committee once 20 years have passed from his date of retirement (therefore, in the year 2019), in accordance with current Hall of Fame rules (enacted in 2001).
