Shawon Dunston was born March 21, 1963 in Brooklyn, New York and is a former shortstop and right-handed batter in Major League Baseball. He resides in Fremont, CA. He was the first overall pick in the 1982 MLB draft by the Chicago Cubs, and played for the Cubs (1985-95, 1997), San Francisco Giants (1996, 1998, 2001-02), Pittsburgh Pirates (1997), Cleveland Indians (1998), St. Louis Cardinals (1999, 2000) and New York Mets (1999). He is currently a special assistant for the San Francisco Giants.

In 1988 and 1990 he joined double-play partner Ryne Sandberg as an All-Star and was a key contributor to the Cubs' NL East division title in 1989, hitting .278 with 20 doubles, 6 triples, 9 home runs, 60 runs batted in and 19 stolen bases. Dunston was a career .269 hitter with 150 home runs and 668 RBI in 1814 games. He seldom walked, so in spite of his decent batting average, his on-base percentage was the second worst of those with at least 4500 plate appearances during his 18 year career. Bill James noted that Dunston was an "eternal rookie, a player who continued until the end of his career to make rookie mistakes.

At the end of his career, he was used mainly as a fourth outfielder and a role player off the bench. He won the 1996 Willie Mac Award for his spirit and leadership.
