Baseball's Top Outfielders

If you're going to hit it deep against these top outfielders, it better be way out of the park!

Top Outfielders - Vladimir Guerrero

On the field, Vladimir Guerrero can do it all. With his powerful hitting, base stealing and an incredible throwing arm, he is recognized as one of baseball's best all around players. This eight-time All-Star from the Dominican Republic was the 2004 NL MVP while playing for the now-defunct Montreal Expos. Now a right fielder for the Los Angeles Angels, Vladimir has a career batting average of .325 and has hit over 360 career home runs. At just 31 years old, he has a lot more years to dominate the majors!

Top Outfielders - Carlos Beltran

The Yankees might have the biggest pay roll, but it's the other New York team that boasts the best outfielder in the Big Apple. Carlos Beltran of the New York Mets is a baseball player that produces results on both sides of the field. In 2006, he won both the Silver Slugger award and a Gold Glove. This Puerto Rican center fielder is also an effective switch hitter.

Top Outfielders - Carl Crawford

At just 26 years old, Carl Crawford of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays is one of the up-and-coming stars in the game. A south paw, Carl has hit over .300 the last three seasons. An athletic and skilled left fielder, experts see the two-time All-Star as a potential 30-30 man in the future.

Top Outfielders - Alfonso Soriano

Alfonso Soriano is one of the elite outfielders in the MLB. On top of making the All-Star team five consecutive years, he is also one of four players in the history of baseball to reach the 40-40 club - 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases. It's no wonder the Chicago Cubs rewarded the Dominican Republic native with an eight-year contract worth $136 million.

Top Outfielders - Ichiro Suzuki

If you're looking for an outfielder that's well-rounded, look no further than the Seattle Mariners' Ichiro Suzuki. A six-time Gold Glove winner and a seven-time All-Star, Ichiro's talent is undeniable. The Japanese center fielder also boasts a career batting average of .333. And let's face it - he also has one cool name!
