New York Yankees: Five Strongest Outfield Arms In Team History

4. Paul O’Neill

Paul O’Neill played nine amazing seasons manning the right field position for the New York Yankees. Not only did he hit 185 home runs and maintain a .303 batting average, but he was epic on the field.

As a Yankee, he recorded 58 of his total 118 outfield assists and his career fielding percentage was a marvelous .988.

Many consider him to have an average arm, but on many plays (like the one above) he would surprise you with a bullet from the deepest parts of the outfield.

He’s not one of the players that struck fear into baserunners, but the “Warrior” constantly terrorized guys trying to take extra bases throughout his 17 years in Major League Baseball. NYY_728_90_v1
