Career: 1982-99, Red Sox, Yankees, Rays
Fun fact: Led AL in OBP five straight years


A creature of habit, Boggs would eat chicken before every game, take the exact same number of ground balls and run sprints at exactly the same time. That discipline served him well at the plate, as Boggs might have had the best batting eye the game has ever seen.

Previous rank: 54
