Player Details


PLAYER: Barry Bonds
TEAM: Giants
POSITION: LF
B/T: L
Class of 2011  - No player caused more controversy or debate than Barry Bonds. Barry started his career with the Seattle Mariners in 1997 and with the exception of one regrettable year with the Atlanta Braves in 2004, only had one year out of 18 where his OPS was under .900. Most players would kill for one or two years with those numbers. Barry is 5th all time in Home Runs with 467, 6th in RBI’s with 1179, and number 2 all time in walks with 1303. Even with those numbers, Bonds could not escape whispers that he was cheating to achieve the amazing numbers he continued to get year in and year out. It should be noted however, that it was never proven that Bonds ever used anything but the talent that God blessed him with. Bonds will enter the HOF as a Giant.  
Player Details


PLAYER: Randy Johnson
TEAM: Orioles
POSITION: SP
B/T: L
Class of 2011  - Randy had a storied career with eleven different franchises over a 18 year FCBL career, including multiple stints with St. Louis, New York Yankees, and the Seattle Mariners. His best years however were with the Baltimore Orioles from 1997 to 2000. Randy was truly a strikeout machine in the FCBL. He still holds the record for the most K’s in one season at 377. Oh by the way, he also holds second place (375), sixth place (346), seventh place (342), and tenth place (319) on the single season K list. Truly remarkable. Randy will be entering the HOF as a Baltimore Oriole.  
Player Details


PLAYER: Pedro Martinez
TEAM: Braves
POSITION: SP
B/T: R
Class of 2011  - Perhaps the greatest pitcher in the history of the FCBL. Pedro Martinez played for seven different managers in seven different cities over his career. Pedro is currently number 1 in both Wins and K’s with 211 wins and an astounding 3245 K’s. To give you an idea how amazing that is, the current leader in K’s that is still playing only has 1932 K’s. Pedro is also number 4 all time in ERA at 3.41. Pedro had plenty of stops over his career, but nowhere was he better than he was in Atlanta. In the 2001 and 2002 season, Pedro put together perhaps the two greatest back to back seasons ever seen. In 2001 he had a 1.78 ERA and .80 WHIP. The next season he fell back to Earth with a 1.84 ERA and .84 WHIP. Pedro will be entering the HOF as a Brave.  
Player Details


PLAYER: John Smoltz
TEAM: Braves
POSITION: SP
B/T: R
Class of 2011  - John may in fact be the most unique pitcher in the history of our great league. John is 9th all time in Wins for a Starting Pitcher. Manager Erick Noland then became bored with seeing John dominate every 5th day, so what’s he do? He makes him his closer. John is also Number 9 all time in Saves with 134. This is a feat that will probably never be matched again in the FCBL. John is also 5th all time in ERA at 3.46, and 7th all time in K’s with 1791. John of course, will be entering the HOF as an Atlanta Brave. He has 4 World Series rings with the Braves.

PLAYER: Jeff Kent
TEAM: Giants
POSITION: 2B
B/T: R
Class of 2012  - Jeff played for multiple managers in his illustrious career but enjoyed the most success with longtime San Francisco manager Cory Adams.

Jeff only had one taste of championship gold and that came in the 1999 season with the Detroit Tigers while being managed by Steve Marker. Overall Kent hit 284 HR (most all time at his position by 106 HR), 883 RBI’s (most all time at his position by 272 RBIs) and had a .275 lifetime batting average (8th all time). Jeff will enter the HOF as a San Francisco Giant. Congratulations go to Jeff and manager Adams.  
Player Details


PLAYER: Manny Ramirez
TEAM: Mariners
POSITION: LF
B/T: R
Class of 2012  - There haven’t been too many more polarizing figures in the history of our great league than Ramirez. Manny started his career in 1997 with the Chicago Cubs when he hit .235 with 27 HR. How many would’ve guessed then that Manny would end up number 2 all time in HR and RBI’s, been a 5 time All Star and win 5 championships? All of that being said, there’s a reason why an amazing offensive player like Manny ended up being traded a remarkable 7 times in his career. Questions of his love for the game and accusations of laziness plagued him throughout his career. Few managers were able to get the most out of him but none did it better than FCBL managing legend Brian Goodwin. Manny hit 207 of his career HR’s with Goodwins multiple teams and also won 2 of his 5 championships with Goodwin. Manny enjoyed his best year in 2001 with the Boston Red Sox when he hit .312 with 47 HR and 133 RBIs. Overall, Manny hit .284, had 552 HR (2nd all time), 1570 RBIs (2nd all time) and a .929 OPS. Manny will enter the HOF as a Seattle Mariner. Congratulations to Manny and manager Goodwin.

PLAYER: Ken Griffey Jr.
TEAM: Dodgers
POSITION: CF
B/T: L
Class of 2012  - Griffey did not have the greatest batting average for what would be considered a Hall of Famer, he more than made up for it with superb defense. Griffey played for numerous managers in his career but had the most success with Bill Toth and his LA Dodgers. Griffey hit 171 of his 426 HR with Toth and the Dodgers. Griffey won 5 championships including one with the Dodgers. For his career, Griffey hit .248, had 426 HR (8th all time), 1174 RBIs (9th all time) and a .825 OPS. Griffey was an even better teammate according to longtime manager Toth: “Legend. There’s nothing else to be said. Set the example for my young guys every year we had him. First to arrive, last to leave. No question, my favorite player of all time.” Toth wouldn’t comment on rumors of a statue being constructed in Griffey’s honor, would only say that Griffey “will receive the proper tribute a player of his caliber deserves”. Griffey will obviously enter the Hall of Fame as a Los Angeles Dodger. Congrats to both Griffey and manager Toth.

TEAM: RedSox
POSITION: SP
B/T: R
Class of 2013  - Curt played for 5 teams in his career but enjoyed his best years with the Boston Red Sox from 1997 to 2001.

He had a career 4.04 ERA but made up for that high number with 2,191 strike outs and a career 1.22 WHIP. Curt enjoyed his best year in 1998 when he had a 2.93 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP and an unbelievable 370 strike outs. That 370 SO rank 3rd all time for one season behind fellow HOF pitcher Randy Johnson.

TEAM: Indians
POSITION: DH
B/T: L
Class of 2013  - Jim Thome played for multiple teams in his great career but was never better than he was when with the Cleveland Indians, where he won one of his two World Series rings in 1998.

Jim will be entering the FCBL HOF as a Cleveland Indian. Congratulations to both Jim and distant cousin/manager Justin Thome.

PLAYER: Vladimir Guerrero
TEAM: RedSox
POSITION: DH
B/T: R
Class of 2013  - They say Vlad has never seen a pitch he didn’t think was hittable and he backed that notion up by clubbing 2,444 hits, 421 doubles, 450 HR and batted in 1,408 RBIs.

Chipper hit the ground running with Atlanta and didn’t miss a single game in his first 3 years of playing.

Chipper ended his career with a .293 BA, 367 HR, 1,288 RBIs and a .894 OPS. He enjoyed his greatest season in 2000 when he batted .291 with 39 HR and 124 RBIs. Chipper also collected 6 WS rings with the Braves dynasty from 2000-2011.  
Player Details


PLAYER: Ivan Rodriguez
TEAM: Braves
POSITION: C
B/T: R
Class of 2014  - Pudge spent his entire 16 year career with the Atlanta Braves, winning 6 championships and ruling from behind the plate with an iron fist. Unfortunately we have no stats to gauge just how dominate Pudge was on defense, but most teams did not dare try and steal bases against the Braves for 16 straight years. Pudge was also no slouch with a bat either, with a .281 career average, 247 HR and a .778 OPS. Pudge will of course enter as an Atlanta Brave. Congrats to Rodriguez and Manager Erick Noland.  
Player Details


PLAYER: Roy Halladay
TEAM: Braves
POSITION: SP
B/T: R
Class of 2014  - Halladay spent 16 seasons in baseball and was almost unhittable for all of it. “Doc” spent time on an amazing 14 teams, but none more than the Atlanta Braves. Doc won 2 championships with the Phillies and the Braves. Doc finished his career with 222 wins, 3.75 ERA and 2327 strike outs, which is good for 3rd all time. Doc will enter the Hall as a Brave.

Mo finishes with a 3.02 ERA, which is number 1 all time, 1096 strike outs (number 1 all time for a reliever) and 481 saves. That number will probably never be broken.
