Ted Williams, able to see the stitching on a fastball and tell you exactly how he'd hit it.

I have to agree with gb4ny. I am a diehard Cards fan and would love to vote for Stan the Man, but there is no way you can vote against Ted Williams.  I mean, the guy missed 3 years to serve in the military and came back to hit .342 with 38 HRs and 123 RBI.   That's impressive.

Ted Williams all the way.

Being a born Cardinals Fan, I would first say Stan Musial (also a great friend to my late uncle) but the baseball purist in me knows Ted Williams-NO DOUBT

I stand corrected.  The hall of fame shows Frank as a right fielder.  Clutch, if possible can you please take away my vote for Frank as a left fielder and put my vote down for Ricky Henderson.

Thanks.

I could be wrong but baseball-reference.com listed him as playinig all 3 positions throughout his career and in every year he played.  I though tI remember him in left Paul Blair iin center and Don Baylor in right during the late 60's early 70's Orioles.  I could be wrong though.

While I think Ted, Barry, Ricky, and Stan are great selections my vote herer is for Frank Robinson.  Career speaks for itself and while he wasn't the hitter that Ted and Barry were his intensity offensively and defensivel make up for it.  I would also consider Ricky Henderson because so far this team doesn't have a lead off hitter and he simply was the best  lead off hitter in the histroy of the game.
