    Ruth, Dimaggio, Mantle slighty over Mays, Bonds, Ott.
    My dream ballpark dimensions
    LF: 388 Feet...Height 37 Feet...LCF: 455 Feet...CF: 542 Feet...Height 35 Feet
    RCF: 471 Feet...RF: 400 Feet...Height 60 Feet
    Location....San Diego

      For two HOF players and a gold-glove CF: the 1942 Cardinals (Enos Slaughter, Stan Musial, and Terry Moore). OPS+ of 156, 151, and 114, respectively.

      In the same year, the Yankees may have had one of the best ever outfields, too. DiMaggio, Keller and Henrich had OPS+ values of 121, 147, and 163.

      Now, without looking it up, which one had which OPS+?

      The three Yankees were even better the year before, scoring OPS+ of 184 (Joe), 162 (Charlie) and 136 (Tommy).

        All time easily Ruth, Dimaggio, Mantle

        Second easily Bonds, Mays, Ott

          Sam Thompson
          Ned Hanlon
          Hardy Richardson

          Mid 1890's O's:
          Steve Brodie
          Willie Keeler
          Joe Kelley

            The '61 Yanks fielded Mantle in CF, Maris in RF, and Berra in LF.

              That would be the best outfield that had ever played together.

              But with the rules of the poll, I voted the Yankees.

                  This is pretty straightfoward, but I'm surprised that Mays, Bonds, and Ott haven't received any support. I think I'd take them over Cobb, Crawford, and Kaline (who have 1 vote).

                    bigstellypadres4life is also the same guy who thinks trevor hoffman is better than mariano rivera

                    his vote is very suspect

                      I voted for the Yanks. But I have no problem with the Tigers. three great hitters. And few could argue that Kaline had one of the top ten OF arms in the last 50 years.. Fropm what I understand Cobb and Crawford weren't slouches withe the glove, either.

                      Welcome back ARod. Hope you are a Yankee forever.

                        Some people will gasp, but for 1 season, the '84 Red Sox were right there. Off the top of my head, Rice was .284 with 28 HRs, Evans .295 with 32 and Armas .268? with 43. Evans and Armas were both gold glove caliber. At that time period, those numbers were scary.

                          I think that Giants' outfield might be a little better with Mays, Bonds & Bonds.

                              5. Clarke/Beaumont/Wagner - 1902 - Pittsburgh - wonderful balance of gifts.

                              6. Jackson/Felsch/Leibold - 1916-20, not '18 - White Sox - 2 great fielders, 1 all time bat.
