      Best All-Time Shortstops Joe Cronin “Joe Cronin was a great player, a great manager, a wonderful father. No one respects you more than I do, Joe. I love you. In my book, you are a great man.”—Ted Williams, speaking to a crowd at Fenway Park on , when his and Joe Cronin’s uniform numbers were retired by the Red Sox. I recently wrote about the top Tigers third basemen of all time. Today, I'll look at the shortstops. Number one is our new Hall of Famer Alan Trammell and nobody else in his vicinity. The rest of the list is more difficult. First, let's review the ground rules. We are only including players who played at least half their games at shortstop.

        Re: All time best infielders. I keep detailed lists of all supposedly great players at all positions. List # 1 is greatest offensive players at each position. At 1B, Lou Gehrig, 2B, Rogers Hornsby, at 3B Mike Schmidt, and SS, is of course, Honus Wagner. No surprises.   Simmons is 29, and has now completed 8 seasons in the Majors. Does he have a chance to be remembered as the greatest defensive shortstop of all time, and supplant Ozzie's status? Maybe there's a chance, but I doubt it. He has 4 Gold Gloves, which of course is impressive, and his defensive stats are spectacular.
