Bill Dickey, C

 

Career: 1928-46, Yankees
Fun fact: Had the highest single-season batting average (.362) for a catcher until Joe Mauer hit .365 in 2009


The Yankees' legion of second-tier stars behind the likes of Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle and Jeter can count Dickey as their patron saint. The tough backstop set records for 100-game seasons behind the plate, playing for eight World Series winners before getting another six rings either managing or coaching for the Yankees.
