Herm Winningham, born in Orangeburg, South Carolina, was a quick outfielder who spent most of his time as a reserve player.

Winningham began his career with the Mets, but was traded to the Expos as part of the four-player deal that brought catcher Gary Carter to New York. 

He became the Expos starting centerfielder in 1985, but a June knee injury opened the way for Mitch Webster to get playing time. In 125 games, Winningham hit .237 with 3 home runs, 21 runs batted in and 20 stolen bases.

In 1988, Montreal sent Winningham to the Reds. He collected 2 hits in four at-bats for the 1990 Cincinnati Reds en route to a World Series victory over the Oakland Athletics.
