The All-Time Greatest Latinos Sluggers In MLB

 


alex y albert.jpgOnce I read about the greatest sluggers in major league baseball history, most of them were remembered by their nicknames.

 

The greatest of them all, in my opinion, was called “The Babe.”

 

No matter what is said and written these days, in my opinion the second-best ever is well-known as “The Big Mac.”

 

In my top-10 all-time slugger list there are such names as “The Mick,” “Say Hey Kid,” “Mr. October,” “The Splendid Splinter” and “Iron Mike.”

 

Among Latinos the all-time slugger my No. 1 is well-known today as “El Hombre.”

 

Albert Pujols just turned 30 a short time ago, and as we read about him for the upcoming season, it’s simply amazing the numbers and achievements he has done in his career.

 

In each of his nine seasons, Pujols has surpassed a .300 batting average, 30 home runs and 100 RBI.

 

All in one decade.

 

As we start a new season in a new decade, it has to be seen if he will keep his current pace that already is hall-of-fame bound.

 

As of this moment, the St. Louis Cardinal first baseman has surpassed at age 30 Latino names such as Roberto Clemente, Rod Carew and Orlando Cepeda.

 

Pujols’ numbers at 30 years old has better comparison numbers than Hank Aaron, Joe DiMaggio, Jimmy Foxx, Hank Greenberg, and Willie Mays.

 

Simply, Pujols has demonstrated he is the best slugger in the game.

 

Among all-time Latinos, the Dominican Republic native is No. 1 and he tops my All-Time Latino Greatest Sluggers.
