New York Yankees: Five Strongest Outfield Arms In Team History

2. Mickey Mantle 

Mickey Mantle is known, like the next man on this list, for his monstrous strength in regards to hitting but many forget that he had one of the strongest outfield arms of all time.

His nickname was “muscles” and scouts raved over how strong and accurate his arm was. According to baseball historians, he only had 117 career assists due to the fact that no one had the courage to run on his arm.

Without a doubt, the ability he had to throw out a runner will constantly be overshadowed by the 1956 Triple-Crown Winner’s historical switch-hitting abilities.
