Rey Ordonez was very very close to making this list for me...He was unbelievable and I would watch clip after clip of him and try to emulate what he did on the field...I would watch (and tape) every Mets game just for the one play that he would make that would make me drop my jaw...
While they were both before my time, two guys that I grew up loving to watch videos of were:
Both were amazing at their craft and true showmen...
Also, when I was growing up I wanted so bad to go to a Cleveland Indians Spring Training and sit and watch Robby Alomar and Omar Vizquel take infield...The way they played infield was a thing of beauty...
Furillo and Cox Did you read Boys of Summer ? Fav sports book of all time. Cal abrams was a reasonably good pinch hitter for those Dodgers. In orioles first year, ( 1954 ) Baltimore got him from Dodgers, mainly because the O's had a Jewish owner who always wanted a Jewish player on the roster. ( it was said that one of the duties was for that player to go to owner's home for all the holidays.) Anyway, in 54, my Dad and I were sitting in right field bleachers and some fan was busting on Cal. After taking it for awhile, the fan yell again, " Hey Abrams, you're a bum." Cal turned and yelled back, " I know, or I wouldn't be playing in Baltimore " My Dad never forgot it and never forgave it.
brooks was great. He was not a showman at all except for great defense, and that was very workman like. I never saw him show anybody up, even umpires. Of course Earl did that for everybody.
