Who are the top 10 first basemen in New York Yankees history?
The New York Yankees have had their fair share of superstars all around the diamond and first base is no different. Although the position may not have the same history as the catcher position, this list still contains several All-Stars, Gold Glove winners, and World Series Champions.
When making this list, I considered a few factors. I took into account what the player has done in the postseason as well as the regular season. Although quality of the statistics do take precedent, quantity is also a part of the evaluation.
Lastly, this list only considers what the player did while they were a part of the Yankees. So Lance Berkman, considered by some to be one of the all-time great first basemen, does not make this list for hitting one HR in 37 games in the Bronx.
This list, like any other, is subjective.
