David Arthur Kingman (born December 21, 1948), nicknamed "Kong" and "Sky King", is a former Major League Baseball left fielder, first baseman, third baseman, and designated hitter. The 6' 6" Kingman was a powerful hitter known for his long home runs, with one measured at over 530 feet. He also struck out frequently, and usually posted a low batting average and on-base percentage. His 1,816 strikeouts was the fourth-highest total in MLB history at the time of his retirement. As a result of the increase in frequency of strikeouts in the intervening period, he currently ranks fourteenth as of June 2014.
