Top 10 Second Basemen In New York Yankees History

8. Billy Martin (1950-1957)

Most remember Billy Martin for his managing days with the Yankees and constant feuds with owner George Steinbrenner, but he had a relatively successful playing career to his name as well.

He was the everyday second baseman for three Yankee championships (1952, 1953, 1956), came in 25th in the 1953 MVP voting with 15 homers and 75 RBIs, and was named an all-star in 1956.

His playing career was not glamorous or exceptional by any stretch, but producing to any extent was valuable when playing alongside the likes of Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra.
