Joe Panik is known as an American professional baseball second baseman. He is most famous for being an All-Star in 2015 and winning a Gold Glove Award in 2016.
Joseph Matthew Panik was born on October 30, 1990 in Yonkers, New York. He was born to guardians Paul Panik Sr. and Natalie Panik. He has a more established sibling Paul Panik Jr., a former Division 1 catcher at Canisius College. He joined John Jay High School and after that enlisted at St. John's University where he played for St. John's Red Storm baseball crew.
He was positioned tenth among school baseball players with a .509 on-base percentage during his junior season in his college. Afterward, he was drafted by Giants in the first round, with the 29th overall choice, of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft. He made his introduction game with the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes and was rated the tenth greatest second baseman in the 2012 season.
Joe Panik played the 2012 season with the San Jose Giants and in 2013 he was promoted to the Richmond Flying Squirrels. He played with the Fresno Grizzlies the following year. Afterward, he started playing in the MLB for the San Francisco Giants on June 21, 2014. With the group, he has played great games of baseball against Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Washington Nationals, Kansas City Royals, and the Colorado Rockies.
Due to injuries, he has been put on the disabled list twice. He was put on the list in August 2015 and another time in July 2018. He was granted a Gold Glove and 2015 and the All-Star spot in 2016.
In August 2019, it was reported that Joe Panik's Giants' locker was empty. A couple of his Marucci bats and arranged things remained, however the Giants' adored second baseman has departed, and he won't be back. The matter of baseball can be pitiless, as Panik found when he was called into manager Bruce Bochy's office at night. The Giants unmistakably are proceeding onward without him, and he picked to turn into a free agent, ready to sign with another group, instead of leaving himself to the transport rides, dusty fields and uncontrolled uncertainty of the minor leagues.
Joe Panik is a happily married individual. He has been married to his long-lasting sweetheart Brittany since December 3, 2016. They knew each other when they were children. The couple has not had any children yet. They are living cheerfully with no indication of separation.
