It’s the position of Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson and Hank Aaron and Roberto Clemente, guys with amazing talent and even more amazing personalities. Indeed, right field is a spot that has been held down by some memorable names over the years.
It is hard to say the same about the current lot of players. While there are several solid right fielders in the game today, there are not many true standouts beyond the 37-year-old at the top of the list.
