Jose Bautista
Years:
2004-2018

Primary Team:
Blue Jays
In 2010, 29-year old Jose Bautista had 113 career home runs and he had hit nearly half (54) in his most recent season. Somehow, shockingly, in his seventh season, Bautista went from a career-high of 16 homers to 54. This was a startling development on the surface but also because for years no one wanted the guy. Bautista had to apply for a scholarship for Latin-born players in order to get a chance to play college ball in the U.S. He was drafted, left unprotected in the Rule 5 Draft, cut, placed on waivers, traded, and traded again. He became the first player to be on the roster of five teams in a single season. Something about him failed to impress the folks who saw him in the clubhouse and on the field. Bautista was slim-waisted and lean as a young player, he was not particularly fast, he had very little defensive skills other than an above-average arm. But he wasn't an instinctive outfielder and he played third base like he was on a hot tin roof. When Toronto got him, Bautista was so lowly regarded that he was dealt for a player to be named later. They batted him leadoff as a last resort to start the 2010 season. That's when something clicked and Bautista became "Joey Bats", popping home runs like, well...pills. At any rate, Bautista was basically a one-dimensional player, swinging for the fences like a madman as he belted twice as many homers in his 30s as he had in his 20s.

#44.  Jesse Barfield

Jesse Barfield
Years:
1981-1992

Primary Team:
Toronto Blue Jays
Teams put their best arms in right field because of the long throws to both third base and home. Often, a right fielder is a center fielder with a very strong arm or without the range to cover center. In his first minor league season with Dunedin in 1978, Barfield played center and Dave Stieb played right. That was before Stieb had decided whether he wanted to pitch or play every day. Barfield continued to play center until he stuck with the Blue Jays in 1982 and shifted to right because of Lloyd Moseby, a faster and superior fly-getter. But Barfield could have handled center field in the big leagues handily, if he needed to. Moseby and Barfield were the same age but never played together in the Toronto farm system because the former was always a rung ahead. Their birthdays were six days apart, and George Bell (the left fielder who starred with them in the famed Blue Jay outfield) was only eight days older than Barfield. Of the three Toronto outfielders, Barfield had the best career.

#46.  Johnny Callison

Johnny Callison
Years:
1958-1973

Primary Team:
Fightin Phils
A slight-built man, even for his era, Callison was a valuable player in his early twenties but didn't have a good season after the age of 29. He shared a lot of traits with Bobby Higginson: the arm, the small build, the short left-handed swing. But Callison was a superior player, clearly. Any ballplayer who came out of Oklahoma after 1951 was inevitably compared to Mickey Mantle, but Callison while very skilled, was never in that strata. He was however, a naturally-gifted player who was nearly big league ready at the age of 19 or 20. The White Sox signed him but never realized what they had, trading him to the Phillies after two cups of coffee. In Philly, he was cornered by hitting coach Paul Waner, who gave him his Hall of Fame hitting advice: "Down on the ball, belly button around." Callison was the heart of the Phillies in the 1960s, and in '64 he finished second in MVP voting to Ken Boyer (but Willie Mays really should won the award). Callison roomed with Jim Bunning and he was known as a world-class worrier, some saying that's what held him back from being great. Like Mantle, his legs betrayed him and he was done in his early 30s.

#87.  John Titus

John Titus
Years:
1903-1913

Primary Team:
Phillies
Titus' career was delayed because he enlisted in the Army during the Spanish-American War, he spent about a year in uniform but he was still stateside when the fighting halted. He also worked as a coal miner but his ball playing skills rescued him from that dangerous occupation. He was 27 when the Phillies gave him a chance in their crowded outfield. He shared the outfield for several seasons with Roy Thomas and Sherry Magee in an excellent trio for Philly. Titus shared a few traits with Dwight Evans: both were right fielders, both had strong arms, both were known for a swarthy mustache, and both were quiet. Titus was known as "Silent John," and another nickname was "Tight Ass" because he hated to spend a dime of his salary.

#91.  Jermaine Dye

Jermaine Dye
Years:
1996-2009

Primary Team:
Kansas City Royals
Sometimes teams can't see the good things that are right in front of them. In 1999 the Royals had 25-year old Johnny Damon in left, 22-year old Carlos Beltran in center, and 25-year old Jermaine Dye in right. They would combine to play 52 years in the majors, but only 18 of them in a Kansas City uniform.

Dye found his best success with the White Sox after he was 31 years old. The long-legged right fielder hit 164 homers for the Pale Hose, including 27 in his final year in baseball. He was the Most Valuable Player of the 2005 World Series when he had seven hits in Chicago's dominating four-game sweep of the Astros.

#92.  Nick Swisher

Nick Swisher
Years:
2004-2015

Primary Team:
New York Yankees
There are guys who never really figure out how they got to the big leagues, who never stop pinching themselves because they're sure it's a dream. Nick Swisher was one of those guys. His twelve-year career brought him to five cities and he established a special relationship with the fans in most of them.

As a player, Swisher was a "grip it and rip it" type of guy, he hit some out (245 in all) and he swung and missed a lot. He never cared about his batting average, he just wanted to help his team win and have fun doing it. Sometimes the fun was a little bit off the charts. Remember that time Tom Cruise was on "Ellen" and he seemed to almost explode with happiness during the interview? Swisher was like that almost all the time during his career. He'll probably be a broadcaster or social media celebrity for the rest of his life. Or maybe he'll stand on a corner somewhere screaming "Bro, I played for the Yankees!"

#93.  Danny Tartabull

Danny Tartabull
Years:
1984-1997

Primary Team:
KC Royals
Many players hated playing for George Steinbrenner, but few rejoiced more when they exited the Yankees than Tartabull. When he was dealt to Oakland in 1995 after nearly four years of strain under Big George, Tartabull said, "This is like being released from jail."

Steinbrenner was a difficult man to play for, but Tartabull was no peach either. After he signed a free agent deal with the Phillies, he complained that he didn't get the opportunity to sign with a team that had a chance to go to the post-season. That was a peculiar way to enter a new city. Then he showed up a day late for spring training and griped when he was asked about it. To add injury to his insults, Tartabull's career with Philadelphia ended after three games when he fouled a pitch off his foot and broke a bone. He was 0-for-7 in his $2 million Philly career and never played again.

#95.  Ival Goodman

Ival Goodman
Years:
1935-1944

Primary Team:
Cincinnati Reds
In 1938 the Reds moved the outfield fences in and Goodman took advantage, hitting 30 home runs, 13 more than he'd hit the previous season. He became the first Cincinnati player to hit 30 homers, but when the Reds moved the fences back out, "Goodie" saw his homer total plummet again. The Reds snatched Goodman from the talent-rich Cardinal organization in 1934, where he'd been a star at every level of play. When he finally got a chance to face big league pitching in '35, Goodman flourished, leading the league in triples in his first two seasons. He hit third in the lineup in front of Frank McCormick and Ernie Lombardi, helping the Reds to pennants in 1939 and 1940. Goodman might have taken a job in the defense industry in World War II, as his playing time dipped significantly during those years, but we couldn't find details on whether that's true.

#97.  Bake McBride

Bake McBride
Years:
1973-1983

Primary Team:
St. Louis Cardinals
McBride's father, who was also called "Bake", was a pitcher and played with Satchel Paige in the negro leagues. The younger Bake was very fast as a young player, which is why the Cardinals had him in center field. At one point the former NL Rookie of the Year was flanked in the outfield by Lou Brock and Reggie Smith. Knee and foot injuries robbed McBride of his blazing speed and curtailed his progress, so St. Louis traded him to the Phillies. With his new team, McBride played right field next to Garry Maddox, and he had his finest seasons at the plate. In 1980 he finished tenth in NL Most Valuable Player voting and had a home run in the Phillies first World Series victory. But injuries were the recurring theme in Bake's career, stopping him from what probably could have been a much more significant career. After more nagging problems with Cleveland over two disappointing season, he was released out of the league at the age of 34.

#98.  Jim Northrup

Jim Northrup
Years:
1964-1975

Primary Team:
Detroit Tigers
The Detroit Tigers in 1968 had three outfielders who could play anywhere out there: Northrup, Al Kaline, and Mickey Stanley, who famously took over at shortstop for the World Series. Northrup had the best season of the three, he hit several clutch homers that season, and belted four grand slams, including two in one game on successive pitches. He was far more than a slugger, Northrup was an excellent outfielder with great range. In the World Series he had two of the biggest hits for the Tigers, a grand slam in Game Six and a triple in Game Seven that proved to be the series-winning hit. Northrup was one of the most popular players on his team, and his teammates called him "The Silver Fox" because he was prematurely grey.

#99.  Willard Marshall

Willard Marshall
Years:
1942-1955

Primary Team:
New York Giants
Marshall was the third and youngest member of the "Three Musketeers" who formed the middle of the lineup for the Giants in the late 1940s. The others were Johnny Mize and Walker Cooper. In 1947 the trio each topped 100 runs batted in, Mize with a league-best 138, Cooper with 122, and Marshall coming in with 107. All of them also hit at least 35 home runs, but the G-Men still finished a distant fourth.

That was the trouble for Marshall throughout his career, he toiled in relatively obscurity in the shadow of more famous teammates and on mediocre teams. Not until his final two seasons when he was a fourth outfielder who barely played for the White Sox, did Marshall play on a team that won as many as 90 games.

The Giants put their eye on Marshall after they played a pair of exhibition games in Atlanta in 1940. The 19-year old was playing for the Crackers and he hit a towering home run against the Giants that caught the attention of manager Bill Terry as well as veteran outfielder Mel Ott. 18 months later the Giants bought Marshall's contract and soon Marshall was playing next to Ott in the outfield. He missed three years while serving in the Marines in World War II, but blossomed into a solid slugger when he returned, eventually replacing Ott in right field and playing for his former teammate.

#100.  George Selkirk

George Selkirk
Years:
1934-1942

Primary Team:
New York Yankees
Selkirk replaced Babe Ruth in right field for the Yankees, and to add pressure he also took Ruth's #3 uniform number and hit third in Joe McCarthy's lineup. He shrugged off the comparison and never had to deal with boo birds in New York, the fans liked him and no one expected him to be the Babe, he was just George, the outfielder who ran on his toes. He eventually moved to left field to make room for Tommy Henrich and later lost his starting job to Charlie Keller. After his playing career, Selkirk managed in the Yankee organization for years. Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, and Moose Skowron played in the minors under Selkirk. He won five World Series as a player and five more as part of the Yankee organization.
