ALL-TIME PLAYER RANKINGS

Right Fielders

Rankings
1
Babe Ruth
No one else is close to the Babe in power or patience at the plate.
2
Hank Aaron
Much more than a HR slugger - hit for average, contact, power. Could run, throw, play defense.
3
Mel Ott
Took advantage of the favorable Polo Grounds dimensions to become a terrific slugger. Great eye.
4
Frank Robinson
Rates just slightly below the two ahead of him. Was a five-tool player who dominated the game.
5
Roberto Clemente
A shade below Kaline who got on base more, Clemente could do it all on the field and was a great leader.
6
Al Kaline
Great fundamental player with amazing arm and hitting skills. Youngest to win batting title, at 20.
7
Reggie Jackson
As a young player he was much more well-rounded, ended up mostly as a free-swinging slugger. Great clutch.
8
Harry Heilmann
Amazingly adept at putting the ball in play and finding holes. He won four batting titles.
9
Larry Walker
Comparable to Heilmann and Crawford but a step behind. Helped a bit by his ballparks, but still great.
10
Paul Waner
The next three rate very close. Waner was a better all-around hitter and got on base a lot.
11
Sam Crawford
Best defender of the group between #7 and #13, Crawford had great pop in his bat. All-time triples leader.
12
Tony Gwynn
Lack of power leaves him out of the upper echelon. A seven-time batting champion who ranks with the best as hitter for average.
13
Andre Dawson
Also roamed center field. Dawson was a great runner, hitter, fielder in his prime. The only player to win an MVP award with a last place team.
14
Dwight Evans
Never great - but always very good. Maybe the best all-around defensive right fielder in baseball history.
15
Ichiro Suzuki
Speed, contact, and lots of hits: Ichiro was a unique offensive weapon for his era.
16
Reggie Smith
Underrated, Smith had great tools, very similar to Dawson and Walker.
17
Dave Winfield
As talented an athlete as has ever played in the major leagues, slipped a bit in later years.
18
Bobby Abreu
A very good all-around ballplayer who excelled at getting on base.
19
Vlad Guerrero
20
Bobby Bonds
