Top 10 First Basemen In New York Yankees History

4. Bill ‘Moose’ Skowron

One of the more consistent first baseman in Yankee history, Bill Skowron hit .294 with a .842 OPS in nine seasons with the club.

He went deep 165 times in those nine years and was a core piece to four Yankee championships (’56, ’58, ’61, ’62).

Clearly overshadowed by the Mickey Mantle’s, Roger Maris‘, and Yogi Berra‘s of the world, Skowron’s numbers were not indicative of just how good he truly was. Driving in around 85 runs a year on championship ball clubs with legends taking RBIs from you is nothing short of spectacular.1abc1TCYankees2SmallDark
