Philadelphia Athletics, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Philadelphia Phillies – Jimmie Foxx, 1B.

Former first baseman Jimmie Foxx, graced the baseball field (and MLB) for a long 20 years. His most productive and successful baseball years were undoubtedly from 1925-45, where he hit 30+ homers in 12 straight years and in 13 consecutive years he drove in over 100 runs! Additionally, he was the AL leader in slugging (five times) and 1933’s Triple Crown winner. Foxx was the first of only three players to walk 6 times in a game and 1 of 9 players with 3 MVP awards, marking this as his claim-to-fame and position on our list.
