Poll: L.A.'s All-Time Outfielders

Voting to find the Los Angeles Dodgers' all-time outfield begins today as the Dodgers continue to seek the fans' choices for the "All-Time L.A. Team" on dodgers.com. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for their three favorite Dodger outfielders in the poll.

The list of outfielders on the ballot includes two Rookie of the Year winners, a World Series icon, a two-time batting champion, three Gold Glove winners and the all-time Dodger single-season home run king.

The outfielder candidates feature the following:

Dusty Baker, who won the NL Gold Glove Award in 1981, played eight seasons for the Dodgers from 1976-83. He earned MVP honors in the 1977 National League Championship Series against the Phillies and hit a career-high 30 home runs that year, joining teammates Reggie Smith, Ron Cey and Steve Garvey as baseball's first 30-home run quartet. Baker hit his 30th home run at Dodger Stadium in the Dodgers' final home game off Houston's J.R. Richard.

Bill Buckner, who batted .314 for the 1974 pennant-winning Dodgers, batted .289 in his first eight seasons with Los Angeles. He reached the Major Leagues as a first baseman, but switched to the outfield to make room for Steve Garvey on the Dodger infield in June 1973. He led the 1976 Dodgers in fielding percentage (.985), outfield assists (7), and putouts (315).

Brett Butler, a hard-nosed center fielder and leadoff hitter, spent two stints with the Dodgers (1991-94, 1995-97). He led the National League in runs (112) and walks (108) in 1991, while compiling a .296 batting average with 38 stolen bases. Butler did not commit an error in the field during the 1991 (160 starts) and '93 (154 starts) campaigns and had the second-best fielding percentage (.997) of any NL outfielder from 1991-94.

Willie Crawford, a Los Angeles native who signed with the Dodgers in 1964, played 832 games in the outfield over 11 seasons for Los Angeles. At age 19, he recorded a pinch-hit single against the Minnesota Twins in Game 1 of the 1965 World Series. He enjoyed career highs in home runs (14) and RBI (66) in 1973 and also played in 1974 in the World Series against Oakland.

Tommy Davis, who is the only Dodger to ever win back-to-back National League batting titles (.353 in 1962, .326 in 1963), still holds the single-season Los Angeles records for most hits (230) and RBI (153), both during the 1962 campaign. Davis compiled a lifetime .294 batting average in 1,999 games from 1959-76.

Willie Davis, who holds multiple Los Angeles Dodger all-time records, played in 1,906 games over 14 years for the Dodgers. Among the Los Angeles records he holds are most at-bats (7,495), runs (1,004), hits (2,091), triples (110), extra-base hits (585), and total bases (3,094). He also still holds the franchise's longest hitting streak of 31 games, set in 1969.

Kirk Gibson, who gave the Dodgers a victory in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series with a pinch-hit walk-off two-run homer, spent three seasons in Los Angeles. He won the 1988 National League MVP Award after helping the Dodgers secure their sixth World Series championship. He compiled a lifetime .268 batting average in 1,635 career games with the Tigers, Dodgers, Royals and Pirates.

Shawn Green, who holds the Dodger all-time single-season home run mark (49), hit 164 home runs for the Dodgers from 2000-2004. He enjoyed a record-setting performance on May 23, 2002 at Milwaukee, going 6-for-6 with four home runs, seven RBI, six runs scored, one double, and 19 total bases.

Frank Howard, the 1960 NL Rookie of the Year, spent seven seasons with Los Angeles. He enjoyed his most productive season with the Dodgers in 1962 when he hit 31 home runs and 119 RBI. Howard became the first player to hit a home run on the Loge Level at Dodger Stadium with a blast off the Yankees' Whitey Ford in Game 4 of the 1963 World Series.

"Sweet" Lou Johnson became a catalyst to the 1965 championship season when he slugged 12 homers and 58 RBI during the regular season and blasted the game-winning home run off Minnesota's Jim Kaat in Game 7 of the 1965 World Series. He was called up to the big leagues in May 1965 after Tommy Davis fractured his ankle. Ken Landreaux, who was acquired from the Twins on the eve of the 1981 season opener, caught the final out of the World Series against the New York Yankees, which sealed the Dodgers' fifth World Series title. Landreaux hit a career-high 17 home runs with Los Angeles in 1983 and compiled a lifetime .268 batting average with the Angels, Twins, and Dodgers.

Mike Marshall, who made his Major League debut during the 1981 championship season, posted career highs with 28 home runs and 95 RBI in 1985. He contributed 20 home runs and 82 RBI in 1988 to help the Dodgers win their sixth World Series title. Marshall compiled a lifetime .270 batting average in 1,035 games with the Dodgers, Mets, Red Sox, and Angels.

Rick Monday, a former Arizona State University star, played for the Dodgers from 1977-84. His most memorable hit was the ninth-inning home run in Game 5 of the 1981 National League Championship Series at Montreal, which propelled the Dodgers into the World Series. His most memorable moment might have been saving the American flag from being burned by two fans on the field at Dodger Stadium in 1976 when he was an outfielder for the Chicago Cubs.

Raul Mondesi was a strong-armed outfielder for the Dodgers and claimed the National League Rookie of the Year award in 1994. He joined teammates Eric Karros, Mike Piazza and Todd Zeile as the second quartet in team history to slug 30 home runs in a season in 1997. He stole 30 bases that same year to put him in the exclusive 30-30 club. He was also a two-time Gold Glove winner while with the Dodgers (1995 and '97).

Wally Moon, acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals prior to the 1959 season, became popular at games played at the Los Angeles Coliseum with his "Moon Shots," or opposite-field home runs over the 42-foot high left-field screen. He helped the Dodgers win the 1959 championship with 19 home runs and 74 RBI in 145 games, along with Gold Glove defense in left field.

Gary Sheffield hit at least 30 home runs with 100 RBI in his first three full seasons with the Dodgers. He hit 43 home runs and 109 RBI in 2000 and set the single-season franchise records in at-bats per home run (11.7) and slugging percentage (.643).

Reggie Smith, who was acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals in June 1976, joined teammates Ron Cey, Steve Garvey, and Dusty Baker in 1977 as baseball's first 30-home run quartet. The switch-hitter finished with 314 career home runs, spanning from 1966-82. He was a key member of the 1977 and '78 pennant-winning Dodger teams and the 1981 World Series championship team.

Duke Snider, inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame in 1980, hit 389 home runs with Brooklyn and Los Angeles between 1947 and '62. He compiled a .300 batting average in 1,923 lifetime games with the Dodgers. Snider also collected the first Dodger hits in the L.A> Memorial Coliseum and Dodger Stadium. His uniform No. 4 was retired by Los Angeles on July 6, 1980.

Jimmy Wynn, who was acquired from the Houston Astros prior to the 1974 season, was nicknamed the "Toy Cannon" and helped spark the Dodgers to their first National League pennant in nine years. He hit 32 home runs and notched 108 RBI for the Dodgers that year and blasted a clutch grand slam during the Sept. 15 game at Dodger Stadium against the Cincinnati Reds to extend the team's division lead to two and a half games. He compiled 291 home runs and 225 stolen bases overall during his 15-year career (1963-77).

Dodger fans have the opportunity to vote for the "All-Time L.A. Team" at dodgers.com/anniversary, with the results being unveiled later this year. The 2008 season marks the 50th anniversary of the Dodgers' move to Los Angeles. The club will celebrate this golden anniversary with fans around the world through a series of historical, cultural and promotional events that are unique to Los Angeles and honor the legacy of the franchise and its players and the loyalty of Dodger fans.
