Shane Patrick Victorino (born November 30, 1980) (nicknamed "The Flyin' Hawaiian") is an American professional baseball outfielder for the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball (MLB). Previously, he played for the San Diego Padres, Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers. He was primarily a switch-hitter until the 2013 season, when discomfort from various hamstring, back and knee problems forced him to become an exclusively right-handed batter, and he throws right-handed.
Victorino made his MLB debut with the Padres in 2003. He played for the Phillies from 2005 through 2012. With the Phillies, Victorino won three Gold Glove Awards, was named to two MLB All-Star Games, and was a member of the 2008 World Series champions. With the Red Sox, Victorino won a Gold Glove Award and was a member of the 2013 World Series champions. He also won the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award in 2008 and the Branch Rickey Award in 2011.
