Jim Rice
Following the batting legacy of fellow Boston Red Sox Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s as one of the most feared sluggers. Rice always had the ability to hit the ball to all fields, but as he aged he began to concentrate on hammering the ball to the opposite field almost exclusively, keeping his batting average near .300 while still averaging over 20 HR per year. In 1979, Rice hit .325 with 39 HR and 130 RBI, and became the only player in Major League history with three consecutive 35 HR-200 hit seasons. On the Red Sox all-time leader lists, he trails only Williams and Yastrzemski in HR, RBI, hits, and total bases. Rice was voted the American League MVP in 1978 and was elected to eight All-Star teams (1977-80, 1983-86). Career statistics include 2089 games played, .298 batting average, 382 home runs, 1451 RBI.
