All Time Best Position Players in Baseballfullboat101 This is a very debatable subject, but I am listing the top ten all around baseball players, excluding pitchers.
The Top Ten
Career avg of .302, 660 hrs, 1903 RBIs, 3283 hits, 523 2Bs, 140 3Bs, .385 OBP, .557 SLG, 338 SB, .981 Fld Pct. Enough said! - fullboat101
660 home runs, 2 mvps, rookie of the year, and lifetime 305 average. The Say Hey Kid stays on top.
Willie was superb in every facet of the game. He excelled beyond the other all-time greats. - 5ToolPlayers
He played his position better than anyone else, before or since!V 5 Comments
Beast no doubt really between him and Mays 1A and 1B. Jeter being number 4 on the list he isn't even the best player on his team lets get real. He is the face of the organization but Arod way better. Arod is a better hitter o ya and way better defensive shortstop... come at me - dwells1285
Great Pitcher, Great Hitter,. 714 bombs, .342 BA, .690 Slg Pct- career record. The Great Bambino was the first home run hitter, and is one of the best - fullboat101
Uh, this list was aimed at all the skills other than pitching. So that eliminates a part of Ruth's case. Not that he wasn't a great pitcher, but that's not a factor in this ranking. - 5ToolPlayers
don't forget to addhow he hit more home runs than entire teams combined
overrated but still the best drawing card ever.V 2 Comments
Batted a consistent. 320 for most of his career and lead his team to 5 world series win. An icon to the greatest team in pro sports.
great great team leader;and not a bragger or mouthy guy ;two thumbs up for jeter!
Derek Jeter was and still is my inspiration to never give up in softball his quotes make me feel powerful
this guys back hand plays are the best there has ever been
I used to believe the hype that he was a great defensive player, but his actual assessments reveal him as a defensive liability. You can check for yourself. - 5ToolPlayersV 5 Comments
Greatest hitter of all time, last person to hit .400 in a season with .406 - fullboat101
Best pure hitter of all time
Second greatest hitter of all time (Ruth), and a poor outfielder. Would be my DH on an all time team.
Best defensive outfielder of all time and the best hitter vs. good pitching in history. How could any be more complete with that comment?
When Mays says Clemente is the only player comparable to him then it confirms what we saw first hand!
What an arm and batting consistency. Speed but elegance fielding...
#1 career avg, .366. Roughest, meanest, dirtiest baseball player of all time, but he played with grace and passion - fullboat101
All time leader in home runs-755. Hit for avg, power, and was quick on the basepaths. - fullboat101
Still the Home Run king.
If jeter is consistent then Aaron hit 700 homeruns, played incredible 5 tool career, hit 40 homers for many seasons
yeah hes someone who showed up for work everyday too!
He is the bomb and he should be Third
If he would have taken better care of himself, he had the power, speed, and all of the above to have been the greatest player ever - SSDirk
Physical injuries kept him from reaching his full potential in the sport, not so much the alcohol abuse or "not taking care of himself" which prevailed in harming his post-career life. - Billyv
I knew Mickey; he finally admitted, albeit too late in his career, that he should have taken better care of himself. What power! What strength and speed.
Extremely great and played almost his entire career on knees that were so bad most players would have quit in their rookie season. - MackyJay
The third greatest baseball player ever. WIllie Mays is #1 and Babe Ruth is #2. - peru12345
Racked up total bases like crazy. Defensively always belonged at first base, not outfield. - 5ToolPlayers
All around the best. If he didn't use steroids he wouldn't have been, but he would still be HOF caliber. Statistically he has 500 steals and 500 homers, which means he is versatile. Derek Jeter is the most overrated player in sports. - Cbatower
Was on a certain HoF path, but started cheating like McGwire and Sosa after the media fawned over them during their fraudulent HR record chase. Bonds proved for all of us how much performance can be inflated if you're one of the cheaters. So sad. I liked him immensely in his early years, now disgusted. Still, not as disgusting as that three-time loser who cheated his entire career even after suspensions. - 5ToolPlayers
People who are well informed rank him in the top 5 or at least top 10. - 5ToolPlayers
Just the best, bottom line. No one better at that position. EVER!
lifetime. 356 hitter, amazing outfielder, if barry bonds is allowed consideration, then you can make an argument for shoeless joe as one of the best ever
Right. For a long time I've said Rose and Shoeless before Bonds. - 5ToolPlayers
How can u leave off the Hit King? The man played practically every position and did it with pride! Charlie Hustle is the best ever!!!
Rose before Bonds. - 5ToolPlayers
Griffey should be in top five. He made some amazing plays and went all out, nothing held back.
The best to ever play the game
George Brett was a great gamer. - 5ToolPlayers
Catcher is the most tiring position in the game and he's the best catcher of all time so that makes him the best position player of all time. He was better with the Chisox than Bosox by the way.
He wasn't the "best catcher of all-time". A very good player but not even the best of his era. - Billyv
