These Center Fielders Shined The Brightest For Their Teams

Baseball | 5/20/20

The center fielder is one of the most exciting position players to watch in baseball. Usually expected to have a combination of speed and arm strength to defend the largest portion of the outfield, they also need to know how to handle the bat. While Mike Trout defines the position for the Angels, not all modern players outshine the past. These are the best center fielders to ever play for their teams in MLB history.

Starting off this list with Mike Trout is a no-brainer. Not only is he the best center fielder the Los Angeles Angels have ever seen, but he can also already be counted as one of the greatest of all-time.

Currently signed to a $426 million contract that makes him an Angel for life, Trout is still under 30-years-old and racking up awards. He’s been named an All-Star eight times, has won three AL MVPs, and seven Silver Sluggers. All that he needs now is to win a World Series.
