Updated 4/18/2021

Major League Baseball as we know it, that is two leagues American and National, playing by the same rules with the champion from each squaring off against the other for baseball supremacy was born in 1901. Because of that these rankings only consider seasons and careers from 1901 and after. To be eligible a player has to have 1,500 career plate appearances.

If you don’t agree, leave a comment and let me know why.

  1. Terry Moore? 18.9 bWAR playing entire career as CF. Top 20 in MVP voting 5 times. Very good defensive CF. Three years of his prime were lost due to serving in World War II.

  2. Jim, thanks for reading. Terry Moore is ranked as my 133rd center fielder of all-time. Agreed on the defense. Both Baseball Reference and FanGraphs have him in the top 100 on their main defensive metrics. And he did lose 3 years to military service. I do not give them any type of statistical credit or breaks for any time lost, be in military service or otherwise. I hope you find time to browse the rest of the site. I’d love to hear your opinions on other posts.

  3. Don’t know how you could have left out Earl Averill and Gus Bell. They were better than at least some of the guys you listed.

    • Dave: Oops … I see where you did include Earl Averill … at just about where I would have ranked him. As for Gus Bell, he was overshadowed by three contemporary NL hall-of-famers: Mays, Snider and Ashburn.
