The debate as to the greatest third baseman of all time is probably a three man race between Schmidt, Pie Traynor and Brooks Robinson. Schmidt was the long ball threat, Traynor the best hitter and an incredible fielder, and Robinson was a clutch hitter and without question, the greatest defender at the hot corner ever. Schmidt’s flair for the dramatic, great defense and inner drive helped him lift the Phillies to their first ever World Championship and make his a true legend in perhaps the toughest sports town in America.
