12. Honus Wagner
The Flying Dutchman was an outstanding hitter from baseball’s Dead Ball Era – being active from 1897-1917. His finished his career with 3,430 Hits (7th), 640 Doubles (9th), 3,367 Runs Produced (9th), .329 Batting Average (28th). Honus still ranks highly as one of the most productive Shortstops of all time and one of the top offensive threats in the history of the game. It’s difficult to not look at his career numbers and not be thoroughly impressed.
While we never had the opportunity to watch Honus Wagner play on the diamond, we should strive to make sure the legacy of this amazing hitter lives on as he was the first Shortstop that was dominant with his bat.
