Baseball has been around for so many years that players are bound to be forgotten eventually. A new breed of talent always seems to find it's way to the surface and players of yesteryear fall by the wayside.
It takes a special type of talent to remain in baseball discussions for generation after generation, and an even more special talent to end up in the Hall of Fame.
Carlos Ruiz has been an important part of the Philadelphia Phillies since joining the team in 2006. Yet his name falls by the wayside playing alongside superstars like Ryan Howard and Roy Halladay.
Ruiz isn't alone however, as there have been many players throughout the history of this great game that haven't gotten their fair share of credit.
