Everyone likes to talk about the arm strength of outfielders. Roberto Clemente had a howitzer. Ichiro has a bazooka. Vlad Guerrero has a laser-guided missile.
But what goes unappreciated is the arm strength of baseball's workhorses—the infielders. While the outfielders are chewing grass and staring at the girl behind the dugout, infielders have the task of not only tracking down ground balls, but making strong, accurate throws to get the runners.
Some infielders just don't have it (I'm looking at you, Chuck Knoblauch), but some infielders are blessed with the gift of a laser arm.
It's hard to name the best arms of all time when a) I'm 20 years old and b) there is no really reliable metric for arm strength, but I thought I'd give it a shot.
Here are 15 infielders from throughout MLB history with tremendous arm strength. I'm interested to hear who everyone thinks should be added or subtracted from this list.
Note: These are in no particular order.
