The Greatest Third Basemen of All Time

List Criteria: Only third basemen and not other infield positions

The greatest third basemen of all time include some veteran MLB players, many of whom are considered among the greatest baseball players ever. These are the guys who played the hot corner like a boss. They demonstrated excellent fielding abilities and contributed to the betterment of their teams with ease. Who do you believe is the best third baseman ever? Vote for your choices, vote down any players you don't think deserve the honor and of course, re-rank this list in any order you want.

A great third baseman will, of course, have an excellent fielding percentage, and the true greats also manage to be excellent at both defense and offense. Need examples? How about George Brett, arguably one of the third base greats - but he's also one of the best hitters in baseball history, too (the same can be said for Mike Schmidt, among others). And can anyone dare argue that the brilliant "Human Vacuum Cleaner," Brooks Robinson, isn't one of the greatest third basemen of all time?

Enjoy voting for the players you believe are the best third baggers ever to play the game.
