Number One: Mel Ott 107.9 WAR (1926-1947)
Mel Ott is easily deserving of number one on our list. Why you say? Let’s just look at his numbers: .304/.414./.533/.947. A near .950 OPS? Wow! Then we look again: 2876 career hits, with 511 home-runs. Ott is good for 25th all time in home-runs.
Ott was incredible. He had 1000 more RBI in his career than Tiernan. No, not 100. A full thousand! That’s insane. On top of that, he had 700 more walks in his career than strikeouts! Ott was the original force at the plate. Can you imagine being the Giants, and you have this guy, then all of a sudden Willie Mays falls in your lap? Three world series appearances is what happens. The Giants only won one of them though. Ott could easily make it into the Top 5 Giants of all time so there is a solid reason for him at the top.
That concludes our top ten list for right fielders. Have you read our other top ten lists we made? By position:
