Vote: Greatest Left Fielder in Philadelphia History

LEFT FIELD: Greatest in Philadelphia History

Connie's Picks...

Al Simmons1. Al Simmons - Athletics: 1924-32, 1940-41, 1944

  • HOF - 1953
  • .356 Career BA in Philadelphia
  • 100+ RBI's in each of his first 9-seasons in Philadelphia.  157-RBI's (1929)
  • HR production ranged from the 20's-30's per season
  • Struck out roughly 40-times per season
  • Stole roughly 40-bases per season

2. Ed Delahanty - Phillies: 1888-89, 1891-1901

  • HOF - 1945
  • .348 Career BA with Phillies
  • 3 seasons with .400+ BA
  • 7-seasons with 100+ RBI's
  • 3X - NL RBI Leader, as high as 146 (1893)
  • 5X - Leader in Doubles
  • 2X - HR Leader - In dead ball era.  (19 in 1893, and 13 in 1896)
  • Did not strike out often, generally in the 20-30 range per season
  • Could steal bases: 11X with 20+ stolen bases, 7X with 30+, 46 in 1895, and 58 in 1898
  • Tough comparison to Al Simmons.  The two had very similar numbers, with the exception of Home Runs.  Delahanty lacked the HR production of Simmons, but also played in the "dead ball" era.

Greg Luzinski3. Greg Luzinski "The Bull" - Phillies: 1970-80

  • Not quite the caliber of an Al Simmons or Ed Delahanty, but Luzinski has to be considered one of the top Left Fielders in Philadelphia history.  
  • 5X - All-Star
  • HR and RBI producer.  
  • HR production was routinely in the 20's to 30's per season.
  • Multiple 100+ RBI seasons (led league in 1975 with 120)
