Top 10 Second Basemen In New York Yankees History

4. Bobby Richardson (1955-1966)

Richardson played an exclusive, 12 year Yankees career. He was a part of three championship teams in 1958, 1961, and 1962 and was most notably known for his 1962 contributions.

He collected 209 hits, slashed .302/.337/.406, was the runner-up in AL MVP voting, and won a gold glove while helping the Yanks capture their 20th title.

An interesting fact about Richardson was that he was named 1960 World Series MVP when the Yankees lost to the Pirates in seven games and is still the only player to win that award on the losing side. He batted .367 with a home run and an impressive 12 RBIs in the series.

By the time Richardson’s career came to a close, he was a seven time all-star and five-time gold glover.
