Top Ten Best Yankees Players


The Top Ten

1 Babe Ruth Babe Ruth George Herman Ruth Jr., better known as Babe Ruth, was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935.

Not to mention best player in MLB history

Best baseball player ever - Alpha101

2 Derek Jeter Derek Jeter Derek Sanderson Jeter is an American former professional baseball shortstop, current businessman and baseball executive who is the chief executive officer and part owner of the Miami Marlins of Major League Baseball.

My favorite baseball player ever and always will

I have about 70 different cards of his.

First yankee for 3000 best plays fture hall of famer and everyone loves him even other teams and people in other countries know who he is. Jeter is the best and I'm not trying to fight against the yankees because I am a yankee fan from brooklyn and I've been a fan since day 1. #DJ3k #YankeeNation

Media hype and new yorker delusions. Somehow got Gold Gloves 4 times when his dWAR was in the negative. So millions of people talk like he's a good shortstop, but I'm not drinking the koolaid. He will be forgotten by the time this current crop of truly great shortstops finish their careers.

3 Lou Gehrig Lou Gehrig Henry Louis Gehrig, nicknamed "the Iron Horse", was an American baseball first baseman who played his entire professional career in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees, from 1923 until 1939. Gehrig was renowned for his prowess as a hitter and for his durability, which earned him his nickname more.

Gehrig batted cleanup, increasing the pressure for pitchers to throw strikes to Ruth. If Gehrig had batted third in the order, with Ruth batting after him, their statistics might be reversed.

Gehrig was a legend. To bad he is most known for his disease - Razor79

Anyone who checks Gehrig's stats will know that there was only one Yankee better than him.

It's true lou Gehrig is way better than Derek jeter

6 Mariano Rivera Mariano Rivera Mariano Rivera is a Panamanian-American former professional baseball pitcher who played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees, from 1995 to 2013. Nicknamed "Mo" and "Sandman", he spent most of his career as a relief pitcher and served as the Yankees' closer for 17 seasons.

Great pitcher and all around person!

He should easily be top 5! The man was a legend and will be missed forever, no one could play like he could!

No one will have more saves than him, try to best 652!

A legend on and off the field

Thurman deserves to be in the Hall!
