• The Yankees History With Right Fielders

    Posted by on March 15th, 2017 · Comments (3)

    Is it just me, or, has it always been a “Yankees thing” to go out AND GET a right fielder rather than develop one themselves? Look at the 21 players below. All came to the Yankees and ended up playing RF for them. And, how many Yankees home grown players can you name that went on to play RF for them, for a prolonged period? It’s not 21. Not even close to that number.

      It’s hard to complain about Ruth, Winfield, Maris and O’Neill, even if not home developed.

      Amazingly, in general, the Yankees just don’t develop and keep homegrown star outfielders. Since 1962, it’s been Bernie Williams, Roy White, Bobby Murcer, Brett Gardner and that’s it.

      I don’t include Mantle since he started in the 50’s.
