One of the best power hitters of all time is No. 5. Mike is one of my favorite players of all time—partially because he was a Phillie, but also because he knew when to give it up. When he gave it up, he ended his career with a Hall of Fame resumé.
Schmidt hit 30-plus HR a whopping 13 times and will forever be known as the most powerful third baseman of all time.
Compared to the rest of the league, his best year came in 1981, when he led the league in runs (78), HR (31), RBI (91), BB (73), OBP (.435), SLG (.644), and OPS (1.088), and he won the NL MVP. Unfortunately, the season was strike-shortened.
