List Rules Only players who are known primarily as right fielders. No center or left fielders

What names come to mind when you think of the greatest right-fielders of all time? This list includes some of the best to ever play the game, including such Major League Baseball legends as Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron and Frank Robinson. This is, quite simply, an amazing list of power, defensive prowess, great arms, speed and high averages. Right field really does have it all. Vote for your top choices, vote down any right-fielders you don't believe deserve a spot on this list and re-rank these players in any order you like. Some of the best hitters in baseball history are, not surprisingly, also excellent right-fielders. These players managed to combine excellent hitting abilities with stellar throwing arms - basically a dream combination for any MLB player (or coach, for that matter). What does it take to play right field? The best right-fielders listed here were outstanding defensive players. Some might believe that right field is an "easy" position, but it really isn't - you've got to be really fast and you've got to have a rocket of an arm. For more great baseball voting, check out these lists of the greatest left-fielders ever, as well as the first, second and third basemen of all time.
