    Whose Number One in the Outfield


    1. Mike Griffin (1887-1898)

    Okay, you ask, who is this? No, Mike Griffin is no longer a household name. He's not even the Mike Griffin who played in the 80's, but that guy was a pitcher anyway. This Mike played before the turn of the century and for teams with names we don't really know. Like what teams; Baltimore Orioles of the American Association, Philadelphia Athletics of the Players League, Brooklyn Grooms and Bridegrooms, plus something called the Cleveland Spiders and St. Louis Perfectos, although he never took the field for the last two. Mike hailed from Utica, New York, and was one of the fastest players around, not only patrolling center field, but on the base paths. In twelve seasons, Griffin stole 473; that's #43 on the All-Time list. He also had 108 triples.


Fielding Ratings in the Stat Geek Baseball PEVA system are meant to give a grade that relates to value for payroll purposes. A player with a low amount of innings played at a position may be rated lower for that purpose, but be a better defensive player. They would be rated higher in the PEVA/FV system with higher innings played, but their FV is lower due to lack of use.
