Dave WinfieldTeams San Diego Padres (1973-80), New York Yankees (81-88, 90), California Angels (90-91), Toronto Blue Jays (92), Minnesota Twins (93-94), Cleveland Indians (95)Honors Four-time NL All-Star (77-80), eight-time AL All-Star (81-88), two NL Gold Gloves (1979-80), five AL Gold Gloves (82-85, 87), six AL Silver Sluggers (81-85, 92), Hall of Fame (01)Championships 1 -- Toronto (1992)Career stats .283/.353/.475, OPS -- .827, Hits -- 3,110, HRs -- 465, RBI -- 1,833The playerHe was born Oct. 3, 1951, the same day that Bobby Thomson hit he Shot Heard Round the World, then he went on to a career that was heard around baseball. He hit 465 home runs and had 3,000 hits. And oh, he also pitched in college. -- Jim Caple, senior writerSuperficially, its a surprise to see Winfield in this conversation. He never led a league in batting or OPS or homers. In career WAR among right fielders, he ranks behind Reggie Smith and Dwight Evans. Seeing him here is an echo of the respect he commanded, not least for coming back from a career-threatening back injury to win a ring with the Blue Jays. -- Christina Kahrl, baseball writerAll Yankees fans know his nickname, but some might forget it was Mr. Mays feud with George Steinbrenner that helped bring about the teams most recent dynasty. The Boss was banned for paying a gambler to dig up dirt on Big Dave, keeping the meddling owner away from the franchise and allowing the team to build from within, en route to five pennants and four World Series titles between 1996 and 2001. Even before all that, Winfield shed his poor postseason reputation with the series-clinching hit as a Toronto Blue Jay in the 1992 Fall Classic. And, thanks again to Steinbrenner, he become the first San Diego Padre inducted into the Hall of Fame. -- Matt Marrone, senior MLB editor9. Ichiro SuzukiTeams Seattle Mariners (2001-12), New York Yankees (12-14), Miami Marlins (15-present)Honors AL Rookie of the Year (2001), AL MVP (01), 10-time AL All-Star (01-10),?All-Star MVP (07), three AL Silver Sluggers (01, 07, 09), 10 AL Gold Gloves (01-10)Championships NoneCareer stats* .314/.357/.405, OPS -- .763, Hits -- 2990, HRs -- 113, RBI -- 750*stats through June 10, 2016The playerHe didnt come over from Japan until he was 27, but will finish with 3,000 hits in MLB to go with his 10 Gold Gloves, an MVP Award, the all-time single-season hits record and undoubtedly more infield hits than anyone in the games history. You can find holes in his resume -- he didnt walk much, didnt hit for much power -- but hes one of a kind. -- David Schoenfield, senior writerDespite not playing in MLB until he was already 27, Ichiro is going to soon join the 3,000-hit club. He is religious about how he treats his bats and gloves, but fans should also regard his achievements as worthy of high honors. -- CapleThe all-time hits leader for Planet Earth. It seems appropriate that Ichiro is one of those do-everything hitters that people were ready to believe could do even more things, such as hit for power, if hed really wanted to change his game. That he didnt, and didnt have to, instead being great at every phase of the game, says something about his remarkable balance and athleticism. -- KahrlSuzuki is experiencing a late-career resurgence, currently sporting an .802 OPS in his age-42 season. He has the opportunity to add to his already-impressive Hall of Fame resume with another few months of outstanding hitting. -- Rob Arthur, FiveThirtyEightThe man plays baseball as if its ballet, pirouetting and twirling around the field perfectly. The noise about whether hes the hit king misses the point: Ichiro is as fun to watch as any single player from his generation. Have you SEEN him pitch? -- Ryan Cortes, The Undefeated8. Al KalineTeams Detroit Tigers (1953-74)Honors 18-time All-Star (1955-67*, 71, 74), 10 Gold Gloves (57-59, 61-67), Hall of Fame (80)*played in two All-Star Games in 59, 60, 61Championships 1 -- Detroit (1968)Career stats 297/.376/.480, OPS -- .855, Hits -- 3,007, HRs -- 399, RBI --1,582The playerAs a contemporary of Aaron, Clemente and Robinson, Kaline is the one you risk overlooking because he was consistent, durable and very good, collecting MVP votes in 14 seasons without ever winning the award. -- KahrlHe made his debut for the Detroit Tigers at age 18. Two seasons later, Kaline was, at the time, MLBs youngest batting champion ever at age 20. He finished his career as a DH, but was good enough to make 18 All-Star games, get 3,007 hits and club 399 home runs. -- Cortes7. Mel OttTeams New York Giants (1926-47)Honors 12-time All-Star (1934-45*), Hall of Fame (51)*Game not played in 45Championships 1 -- New York (1933)Career stats .304/.414/.533, OPS -- .947, Hits -- 2,876, HRs -- 511, RBI -- 1,860The playerOne of the top stars in the National League in the 1930s, the retroactive analysis says he was the best player in the league five times. Playing in the Polo Grounds, Ott learned to pull the ball down the short right-field line and hit 323 of his 511 home runs at home. He is not remembered much now, but was much beloved during his time. In a 1944 nationwide poll, he was voted the most popular sports hero of all time, ahead of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Jack Dempsey. -- SchoenfieldMy great-grandfathers favorite player, so I can be sentimental up to a point, but his presence here is emblematic of how we put a premium on numbers without asking how or why. A pre-integration star, Otts greatest talent as a lefty pull hitter was his ability to exploit the short right-field line in the Polo Grounds, which was just 258 feet down the line. Ott hit 323 of his 511 homers there. He was good, but hes sort of the best example of the Paul ONeill type -- great in his day and his way, but not an all-time great. -- Kahrl6. Tony GwynnTeams San Diego Padres (1982-2001)Honors 15-time All-Star (1984-87, 89-99), Hall of Fame (2007)Championships NoneCareer stats .338/.388/.459, OPS -- .847, Hits -- 3,141, HRs -- 135, RBI -- 1,138The playerDuring one five-year period, Gwynn batted an astonishing .335 with two strikes. During those five years, only Mike Piazza hit that high using ALL his strikes. -- Tim Kurkjian, senior writerHe owns eight batting titles and hit .338 for his career, but the really exceptional thing about Gwynn was that he was perhaps the friendliest and most engaging player you could ever meet. It is a shame he is no longer with us. -- CapleLike a figure out of the games earliest history, Gwynn was a hitting machine sent from the past to prove the possibilities of the present. His career BABIP of .341 is a reminder that BABIP is not a constant everybody regresses to. Greatness sets its own standard. -- Kahrl5. Reggie JacksonTeams Kansas City As (1967), Oakland As (68-75, 87), Baltimore Orioles (76), New York Yankees (77-81), California Angels (82-86)Honors 14-time All-Star (69, 71-75, 77-84), two-time World Series MVP (1973, 77), MVP (73), two Silver Sluggers (80, 82), Hall of Fame (93)Championships 5 -- Oakland (1972-74), New York (77-78)Career stats .262/.356/.490, OPS -- .846, Hits -- 2,584, HRs -- 563, RBI -- 1,702, Ks -- 2,597 (all-time leader)The playerWas he the best player in the 1970s? No, but he might have been the most famous. He hit 563 home runs, and nobody took a bigger swing. Its the nickname he won in the 1977 World Series, when he hit five home runs, including three in the decisive Game 6, that lives on: Mr. October. -- SchoenfieldJackson is like Barry Bonds in that he was initially a plus-defender with speed, but is remembered best as the signature slugger of his era. DHing didnt really help him: His career OPS in right field was .893, falling to .739 when he only had to bat. The first and only Hall of Fame hitter with 2000 or more Ks, but he shouldnt be the last. -- Kahrl4. Frank RobinsonTeams Cincinnati Reds (1956-65), Baltimore Orioles (66-71), Los Angeles Dodgers ?(72), California Angles (73-74), Cleveland Indians (74-76)Honors NL Rookie of the Year (1956), NL Gold Glove (58), NL MVP (61), AL MVP (66), AL Triple Crown (66), World Series MVP (66), eight-time NL All-Star (56-57, 59*, 61-62*, 65), six-time AL All-Star (66-67, 69-71, 74), All-Star MVP (1971), Hall of Fame (82)*played in two All-Star Games in 59 and61Championships 2 -- Baltimore (1966, 70)Career stats .294/.389/.537, OPS -- .926, Hits -- 2,943, HRs -- 586, RBI -- 1,812The playerFrank Robinson was the first black manager in major league history, and on that historic day, he was a player/manager for the Indians. The Yankees Doc Medich got ahead of Robinson, 0-2, in the first inning, then threw him a nasty slider just off the plate. Robinson thought, Hes trying to strike me out on three pitches. Hes trying to embarrass me on my day. Robinson hit the next pitch for a home run. -- KurkjianHe curled his upper body and head over the plate, daring pitching to throw inside. His slid into the bases sometimes deliberately vicous. Yet few players were more respected, and the numbers speak to his greatness: 586 home runs, two MVP Awards and a legacy as the games first black manager. -- SchoenfieldHe hit nearly 600 home runs (586) and had nearly 3,000 hits (2,943), was the MVP in both leagues and won the Triple Crown in 1966. And on top of his great playing career, he was also a manager, the first African-American to do so, and was named manager of the year in 1989. Why dont more people think about this man? -- CapleBeyond the Aaron vs. Ruth debate in right field, somebody has to be No. 3 all time, the guy just outside of that conversation. Robinsons a great choice as that guy, a two-time MVP with a Triple Crown and a couple of rings earned with a blend of power, tremendous plate coverage for a right-handed batter and speed. One great what-if: Could the Big Red Machine have been even better if the Reds hadnt traded Robinson after 1965? -- KahrlRobinson was the rare player who also had some success as a manager. He won the 1989 AL Manager of the Year award to go along with his two MVPs and Rookie of the Year honors. -- ArthurWhen he retired, Robinson had the fourth-most home runs of all time and was the only player to win league MVP honors in both the National and American Leagues. Robinson would go on to manage more than 2,000 big league games. -- Cortes3. Roberto ClementeTeams Pittsburgh Pirates (1955-72)Honors 15-time All-Star (60-67, 69-72*), 12 Gold Gloves (61-72), MVP (1966), World Series MVP (71), Hall of Fame (73)*played in two All-Star Games in 60, 61 and62Championships 2 -- Pittsburgh (1960, 71)Career stats .317/.359/.475, OPS -- .834, Hits -- 3,000, HRs - 240, RBI -- 1,305The playerRegarded as the one of the best defensive right fielders of all time thanks to a legendary arm that helped him win 12 Gold Gloves, Clemente was a notorious bad-ball hitter who hit .312 lifetime and won four batting titles, although he didnt have the power of contemporaries Hank Aaron or Frank Robinson. His legacy, of course, remains incomparable, the first dark-skinned Latin superstar in MLB, revered as a role model in Puerto Rico and throughout Latin America. -- SchoenfieldA right-field archetype, the guy with a cannon who was also a big-time run producer. He is still third all time in WAR among Latin players. But Clemente was so much more than that, one of the first great Latin stars and admired for who he was off the field as well as on it. ?-- KahrlClementes accomplishments off the field were so titanic that its easy to forget his skill on it. He finished his career 16th in WAR among outfielders, just behind Joe DiMaggio. -- ArthurAs much a daring activist as he was a dynamic baseball player, Clemente in his prime could unleash lasers from right field to home plate on command. He was forever trying to help people, at any cost, and even died tragically while trying do so. There havent been very many men like Clemente in the history of the sport. -- Cortes2. Hank AaronTeams Milwaukee Braves (1954-65), Atlanta Braves (66-74), Milwaukee Brewers (75-76)Honors 24-time NL All-Star (55-74*), AL All-Star (75), NL MVP (1957), three NL Gold Gloves (58-60), Hall of Fame (82)*played in two All-Star Games in 1959, 60, 61 and 62Championships 1 -- Milwaukee (1957)Career stats .305/.374/.555, OPS -- .928, Hits -- 3,771, HR -- 755, RBI -- 2,297 (all-time leader), TB -- 6,856 (all-time leader)The playerThe man who broke Babe Ruths all-time home run record also made 25 All-Star teams; received MVP votes 19 consecutive seasons, winning once; and drove in a record 2,297 runs. He was a Brave in so many ways. -- CapleDespite topping 8 WAR four times in his career, Aaron won the MVP award only once. Although his longevity was his calling card, he would have been a likely Hall of Famer if he had retired by 30. -- ArthurAarons courage and consistency while breaking Ruths career home run record help define his greatness. He never hit 50 home runs, hitting 30 or more 15 times while having to play through the low-scoring 60s. As I say elsewhere, he is my pick for the?all-time best right fielder. -- KahrlFrom the day he hit No. 755 on July 20, 1976 until Barry Bonds snatched history in 2007, no one sniffed Aarons all-time home run record. Over a 23-year career, Aaron was good enough to warrant 97.8 percent of Hall of Fame votes, the highest at the time since Ty Cobbs 98.2. -- Cortes1. Babe RuthTeams Boston Red Sox (1914-19), New York Yankees (20-34), Boston Braves (35)Honors AL MVP (1923), two-time AL All-Star (34-35), Hall of Fame (36)Championships 7 -- Boston Red Sox (1915, 16, 18), New York (23, 27, 28, 32)Career stats .342/.474/.690 (all-time leader), OPS -- 1.164 (all-time leader), Hits -- 2,837, HRs -- 714, RBI -- 2,214The playerI once asked Burt Hawkins, an old-time baseball writer, to name the greatest baseball player of all time. He said, without hesitation, Buddy boy, Ill take Babe Ruth, and you can have the next three. -- Kurkjian?Eighty years after his retirement, no major leaguer has come close to matching Ruths prowess on both the mound (94-46, 2.28 ERA) and the plate (714 home runs). If he is still the most famous player in history, well, there is a reason. -- CapleHow good was Ruth? In his day, in the uncompetitve all-white, eight-team leagues, he was obviously the best. But what if the game had been integrated? We dont know how well hed have done. Could he hit the slider? It didnt really show up until he was done, so we dont know. Hes some folks No. 1, but thinking about those kinds of things, hes not mine. -- KahrlFor more about Babe Ruth and the 1927 Yankees, check out The Diary of Myles Thomas. Nuevas Adidas Ultra Boost . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. Zapatillas Hombre Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 LTD Negras/Plata BA8923 .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. The fourth days play of the third Test at Headingley in July 1975 ended with the match balanced on a knife-edge. Australia, chasing a record 445 to beat England, and so retain the Ashes, had reached 220 for 3, with their opener Rick McCosker still there, within one hit of a maiden Test hundred. England still had their noses in front, however, with only Doug Walters, never happy on English pitches, and the incapacitated Ross Edwards of the mainline batsmen remaining. But the pitch was benign, and any one of three results were still possible.The last day - a Tuesday, in those days of rest days on a Sunday - dawned cloudy, but when George Cawthray, the groundsman, pushed back the covers, he was greeted with the sight of a pitch which had been vandalised. Several lumps of soil had been gouged out of the surface just short of a length at the Rugby Ground End. While Cawthray later admitted that he could have repaired those sufficiently to allow play to recommence, what sent a chill down his spine was that the holes had been filled with about a gallon of oil. Cawthray found the solitary nightwatchman, who had not heard anything unusual, and then summoned the police.As the players, officials, and keen early spectators arrived, the first signs that all was not well came when they were greeted by the sight of slogans daubed on Headingleys perimeter walls: George Davis is innocent. Inside, the number of policemen and officials clustered round the pitch soon brought home the reality.Tony Greig and Ian Chappell, the two captains, inspected the pitch and agreed that it couldnt be used. The umpires briefly considered a suggestion that the adjacent strip could be mown, but with no guarantee that it would play as the one used for the first four days had - slow, low and with little turn - that idea was quickly dismissed.Television viewers tuning in for the start were greeted by a sombre-looking Peter West. The reason for the lack of his usual genial grin immediately became obvious as he announced that the match had been abandoned. The details given were sketchy and brief. And whereas today endless replays would be shown, and petro-chemical experts dragged in to explain exactly what kind of oil had been used, in those more genteel times of 1975, the BBC reverted to transmitting a picture of a cricket ball with a two-line explanation as a caption.By lunchtime, the grey clouds had given way to a more persistent drizzle: the match would have been abandoned by tea-time anyway.A rumour began to circulate thatt there would be an extra Test - a fifth - slotted in after the Oval finale. Adidas Ultra Boost Hombre Baratas Núcleo Negro. But although the idea was discussed by the two boards, it was soon dismissed. The only spare date was for a match starting on September 11, and the Australians, who all had fulltime jobs back home, were committed to return before then.And what of the George Davis, the man in whose name the pitch had been dug up? Largely unknown until then, he was a 34-year-old London minicab driver who had been sentenced in 1974 to a 20-year sentence for armed robbery. Protestors had been campaigning for his release for about a year, and in 1976 he was freed after Merlyn Rees, the home secretary, decided that his conviction was unsound. But two years later he was found guilty of attempting to rob a bank and sent to prison for 15 years. Released in 1984, he again returned to prison in 1987 when caught trying to steal mailbags.Interviewed on the evening of the incident, Colin Dean, Daviss brother-in-law, who was later convicted of being involved, told the BBC that the act had been carried out to bring the subject to the publics attention. We can get the Ashes back anytime, he argued. What have we done? Dug a little bit of ground up. Is it sacred?Dean and three others - two men and a woman - were eventually taken to court and charged with vandalism. Three received suspended sentences and one, Peter Chappell, was jailed for 18 months.The fourth Test at The Oval ended in a draw, even though it was extended to six days, and so Australia, led by Ian Chappell for the last time, retained the Ashes. McCosker, stranded on 95 at Headingley, did manage to score a Test century at last.In the aftermath of the incident, security at major matches was reviewed. But just in case anyone thinks that this kind of thing couldnt happen today, its worth noting that in May 2004 vandals scaled the walls at The Oval and dug holes just behind the crease at the Vauxhall End, delaying the start.Footnote Picking on innocent pitches appears to have been all the rage in the hot summer of 1975. In the same issue of The Cricketer which reported on the Headingley vandalism, there was a story about police in Staffordshire being summoned to deal with a man who had repeatedly driven his car across the square at Silverdale CC. He was thought to have been protesting at balls being hit into his garden, which adjoined the ground.
