Quick, who is the greatest second baseman of all time?  Arguments can be made for Joe Morgan, Rogers Hornsby, Jackie Robinson, Craig Biggio and a few others. 

Did this guy pop into your head?

If not, you might want to think again.  Check out these fielding stats:

  • 123 consecutive games without an error
  • Four seasons without a throwing error
  • Career fielding percentage of .989
  • Nine time Gold Glove winner
  • Led the league in assists at 2nd base seven times

And how about:

  • Eight consecutive All Star starts
  • Seven time Silver Slugger Award
  • 1984 League MVP
  • Led the league in runs scored three times
  • Fourth on Cubs all time for hits, singles, doubles, extra base hits and stolen bases
  • Elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2005


Let the debate begin.
