The Top 10 Leadoff Hitters Of The Past 50 Years

Every spring, there are a handful of questions that each team faces and must resolve before the start of the regular season.

Often these questions revolve around how to set the lineup and many times start with who will be the team's leadoff hitter.

For the teams that had the 10 guys that follow on this list, that was never an issue, as you could pencil them in atop the lineup and count on them to be a catalyst for your team.

I have chosen who i feel are the top 10 leadoff hitters in baseball history. I looked at what would be considered key stats for a leadoff man, as well as how the players performed in their primes. And of course, a little subjectivity on my part was involved as well.
