7. Jimmie Foxx
The power hitting First Basemen finished his career 18th All Time in Home Runs (534), 9th All Time in OBP (.428), and 8th All time in RBIs with 1,922. His outstanding 1.038 OPS ranks 5th All Time. No matter what metric you are looking at Jimmie Foxx was not only productive – he was devastating at the plate. Foxx won the Triple Crown in 1933, making it extremely obvious why he was dubbed “The Beast.”
Very few First Basemen in history have put up numbers that can even compare to Foxx. His hitting prowess will never be forgotten, there is no doubt that he was one of the most respected hitters during his era. Talents like Foxx are rare and only Albert Pujols has been able to put up comparable offensive numbers at First since Foxx’s retirement.
