  • Kevin Edmund Youkilis (/ˈjuːkəlɪs/; born March 15, 1979), also known as "Youk" /ˈjuːk/, is an American former professional baseball first baseman and third baseman. A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 2001, after playing college baseball at the University of Cincinnati. He played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Red Sox, the Chicago White Sox, and the New York Yankees. He is currently a special assistant to the Chicago Cubs and former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein. Known for his ability to get on base, while he was still a minor leaguer, Youkilis was nicknamed Euclis: The Greek God of Walks in the best-selling book, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game. A Gold Glove Award-winning first baseman, he once held baseball's record for most consecutive errorless games at first base (later broken by Casey Kotchman). He is also a three-time MLB All-Star, two-time World Series Champion, and winner of the 2008 Hank Aaron Award. An intense performer on the playing field, Youkilis was known for his scrappiness, grittiness, dirt-stained jerseys, home-plate collisions, and his strange batting stance. He excelled despite a physique that led many observers to underestimate his athletic ability. He was called "roly-poly" by his high school coach, "pudgy" by his college coach, a "fat kid" by general manager Billy Beane, and a "thicker-bodied guy" by the Red Sox scout who recruited him. As Jackie MacMullan wrote for the Boston Globe: "He does not look like an MVP candidate; more a refrigerator repairman, a butcher, the man selling hammers behind the counter at the True Value hardware store." Youkilis was named to the Sporting News' list of the 50 greatest current players in baseball, ranking No. 36 on the list in 2009, No. 38 in 2010, and No. 35 in 2011. (en)

Trois fois honoré d'une sélection au match des étoiles, Youkilis a remporté un Gant doré pour son jeu défensif au premier but et est un champion des Séries mondiales de 2004 et 2007 avec les Red Sox de Boston, pour qui il a évolué de 2004 à 2012.

  • Kevin Edmund Youkilis (* 15. März 1979 in Cincinnati) ist ein ehemaliger US-amerikanischer Baseballspieler im Major League Baseball, der zuletzt für die Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in der NPB spielte. Der First Baseman/Third Baseman nahm drei Mal am MLB All-Star Game teil und ist zweimaliger Gewinner der World Series. „Youk“ sorgte im Minor League Baseball durch seine Fähigkeit für Aufsehen, viele Walks und somit eine hohe On-Base Percentage zu erzielen. In Anspielung auf seinen griechisch klingenden Namen erhielt er den Spitznamen „Euclis, Greek God of Walks“ (Euclis, der griechische Gott der Walks) und debütierte 2004 für die Boston Red Sox. Auf Anhieb gewann er als Ersatzspieler die World Series und etablierte sich bei den Red Sox als startender First Baseman. 2007 hatte er eine gute Saison, in dem er neun aufeinanderfolgende Spiele mit mindestens zwei Hits hatte, 190 Spiele ohne einen Error schaffte und einen seltenen Inside-the-Park-Homerun erzielte. Er war Teil jenes Boston-Teams, welches die World Series 2007 gewann. Im Jahr 2008 erzielte Youkilis, der bei Bedarf auch nun Third Baseman spielte, Karriere-Bestwerte von 29 Home Runs, .305 Batting Average, .413 On-Base Percentage, 115 Run Batted In. Er belegte bei der Wahl des MVP (Wertvollsten Spielers) Platz 3 und wurde zum ersten von drei Mal ins All-Star Game gewählt. 2009 nahm Youkilis für die USA im World Baseball Classic 2009 teil, und schaffte es wieder ins All-Star-Game. 2010 verlief für ihn mäßig, als er sich den Daumen zerrte und nicht an seine Leistungen anknüpfen konnte. Als auch die Folgejahre nicht wie gewünscht liefen, wurde er zu den Chicago White Sox und dann zu den New York Yankees abgegeben, für die er in der Saison 2013 spielte. Für die Saison 2014 wechselte er dann zu den Tōhoku Rakuten Golden Eagles. Im Oktober 2014 verkündete Youkilis seinen Rücktritt vom Baseball. (de)
