Greatest 30 New York National League Players Of All-Time

Welcome to Episode 3 of Hello Old Sports! Last week we selected a 30-man All-Time Team for the New York Yankees, and this week it’s the National League’s turn.

We’ll look at the history of the New York Mets, Brooklyn Dodgers, and New York Giants to select a 30-man roster. Many people think that the history of New York baseball is all about the Yankees, but as we demonstrate in this episode, the National League History of the Big Apple is just as rich.

Picture a starting outfield with Willie Mays, Mel Ott, and Zack Wheat. Or a pitching rotation of Christy Mathewson, Doc Gooden, and Jacob DeGrom. There are some really close calls here—Mike Piazza or Roy Campanella? Willie Mays or Duke Snider? Gil Hodges or Keith Hernandez?
