11. Tris Speaker
Plainly put, Tris Speaker is one of the best Center Fielders to ever play the game of baseball. His career is littered with outstanding offensive numbers that speak to how much of a threat he was when he was at the plate. He finished with 792 Doubles (1st), .345 Batting Average (5th), 3,514 Hits (5th), .428 OBP (10th) all speak to his greatness during baseball’s infancy.
When speaking of the legends of baseball’s past one almost has to include Tris Speaker if they want to be taken seriously. While another name that many casual baseball fans will not be familiar with, baseball historians will agree that his name belongs when speaking about the best hitters that ever played the game.
