Top 10 First Basemen In New York Yankees History

9. Mark Teixeira

Mark Teixeira‘s health has not been kind to him in his seven-plus years in the Bronx, but fans have to face a true reality: Tex will be missed.

His entire Yankee career he has been that switch-hitting power guy in the middle of the lineup that poses fear into oppositions. He has smashed 194 home runs and counting in pinstripes, including two huge ones in the 2009 postseason.

Not to mention his glove. The amount of errors Tex has saved at first can arguably be described as heroic. He is a gold glove in the truest sense of the word.

It is always interesting to toy around with the idea of him being on the field for 162 games. Scary stuff.1abc1TCYankees2SmallDark
