2 of 7
The Kings of the InfieldHank Greenberg (1B) The 6’3 Greenberg was known for his power at the plate and his defensive skills at first base. Like Ty Cobb, he is a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and his number has been retired by the Tigers. He is a hero to many because of his dedication to baseball, his country, and his faith. His best year was 1940, where he was awarded the MVP and named an All-Star. During that year, he topped the league in slugging and on-base percentages, total bases, doubles, home runs, and RBIs.

(C) Another member of the 1984 World Series,Lance Parrish
was a remarkable catcher than was named an All-Star for eight of his seasons. Normally, he played catcher, but he was such a good player that he was occasionally seen at first and in the outfield. He won numerous Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Awards. Like Lou Whittaker, 1983 was his best year. He earned a Gold Glove, Silver Slugger, and he was on the All-Star Team. In 1983, he finished ninth, behind Whittaker in the MVP vote.
