The All-Time Gotham Baseball Team: THE OUTFIELD

Posted on Updated on

298778_167741566654916_406827449_nYou’ve heard the song plenty of times; Willie, Mickey and the Duke. Usually, when some outlets do this kind of an “all-time outfield” poll, there’s really no need to, as the three aforementioned HOFers are always penciled in. Sure, some folks will argue DiMaggio over Mantle, and some will debate whether or not Snider’s numbers are comparable because he played in a bandbox, etc.

However, Gotham Baseball is being a tad more selective; in addition to including more modern players to the mix, we’re also asking our readership to select our all-time outfield by position, rather than a general “OF” designation.

Once the votes are tallied, the Gotham Baseball panel of experts from all over the realm of baseball will make the final selections, which will be announced at an upcoming event at Foley’s NY, which was named Best Baseball Bar in NY by Gotham Baseball magazine back in 2011.

    If the goal is to go all the way, DiMaggio should be in center, Ruth in right.

    I’ve gone with Zack Wheat in left, but there sure are good arguments for Meusel, Keller, White & Winfield, among a few others. As far as Dimaggio, Mays & Mantle are concerned, that’s one of the toughest evaluations & votes in all of sports. Because of his profound ability to help take a team all the way – not to mention his phenomenal hitting, fielding, and baserunning skills – I choose to go with The Great DiMaggio. So it’s Wheat, DiMaggio & Ruth for me.

    Tough decisions! As big a Mantle fan as I am, I have to go with Mays. No question on Ruth and Wheat for their great defense in the OF. Great poll!
