Brooks Robinson

1970

Robinson cemented his reputation as one of the best-fielding third basemen in MLB history with his stellar glovework in the Series against the Reds. Among his brilliant plays were a diving catch of a Johnny Bench line drive and a backhand stab of a Lee May grounder down the line. Robinson was almost as good at the plate, hitting .429 with six RBIs and the game-winning home run in Game 1 of Baltimore's five-game victory.
