Ted Williams Red Sox  gets the nod. Two reasons,1. Last man to hit .400,and 2. Did two tours of duty in two Wars and still came back to finish his career. His eyes were the best in the business which puts him at the top of the list. No championships but that was Boston for you. Rickey Henderson, Stan Musial, Tim Raines, all get honorable mentions. Hats off to that top 50 list of Left Fielders, 5 stars.

That was a pretty complete Top 50 by A Sleeper. Here is my Top 5.

  1. Ted Williams - Red Sox
  2. Stan Musial - Cardinals
  3. Carl Yastrzemski - Red Sox
  4. Rickey Henderson - Athletics, Yankees, Mets, Mariners, Padres, Red Sox, Dodgers, Padres, Angels
  5. Barry Bonds - Pirates, Giants  / Joe Jackson - White Sox

The splendid splinter gets my vote. His stats would have been even more formidable if not for WWII.

Ted Williams.  Perhaps the best pure hitter ever.

Cards fan here, but I have to admit it's Teddy Ballgame.  Best pure hitter of all time.

Picking the best at any position is tough and in left fiedl we have quite a few phenomenal players... my vote has to go to Barry Lamar Bonds... he is like no other... he could do it all... for those of you stuck on the steroid issue, look back to his talents prior to the growth... he was a terror in Pittsburgh... MVP's before the baseball world decided to make a mockery of the game... the performance enhancers and the tight ball helped everybody... he was special before all of that... In looking at the other lists on this posting, I did see quite a few other players that would fall in the category of enhanced play such as Rickey Henderson and Tim 'slide head first to protect the rock in my pocket' Raines... the only person close is Ted Williams... he was one fo the best hitters ever... but Bonds could do it all... gold gloves, stolen bases, average and power... Lastly, I saw George Foster on a list below Jose Cruz among others... please George Foster was a machine... often overlooked, he made the Reds Big Red Machine as potent as it was... 50 HR before it was vogue... and did rather well with the Mets too... Move George up the list...

Put me down for Stan "The Man" Musial. I wish I had been able to watch this guy play. 3 NL MVPs, 7 NL batting titles and a 20 time NL allstar this guy was the total package. What a career!!

My vote goes to the incomparable Splendid Splinter, Ted Williams. Musial would be my second choice.
