Dawn recently asked me in the comment section which players throughout the history of baseball I would pick to build the ultimate baseball team. I would go with six different players in the outfield. Babe Ruth, Henry Aaron, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio and Frank Robinson.
At first base, Willie McCovey, Willie Stargell, Lou Gehrig and Eddie Murray, who I went into the Hall of Fame with.
Second base would be Joe Morgan, Ryne Sandberg and Jeff Kent.
Definitely Ozzie Smith and Omar Vizquel at shortstop. Vizquel is deserving of the Hall of Fame too.
Third base I would say Mike Schmidt, Brooks Robinson and George Brett.
At catcher, Carlton Fisk, Johnny Bench, Yogi Berra and yours truly. I never got to see Roy Campanella, but he would be right there too.
Pitchers, there are a ton of them, but Cy Young, Sandy Koufax, Tom Seaver, Greg Maddux and Steve Carlton for sure. Carlton was absolutely filthy. Relievers are Bruce Sutter, Goose Gossage and Trevor Hoffman. Hoffman has been unreal.
