In 2016 at age 40, Ortiz had a career finale for the ages—batting .315 with a major league-leading 48 doubles, 38 home runs and an AL-high 127 RBIs.Each of those numbers set all-time records among players performing in their last season.Yastrzemski hit 40 or more homers three times over a four-year period, but otherwise never hit more than 28.Overall, he slumped through the early 1970s, but later revived his play as the team came back to life with young stars Jim Rice, Fred Lynn and Dwight Evans; he knocked in 100 RBIs in back-to-back seasons (1976-77) and, in 1982 as he approached his 43rd birthday, was hitting well above .300 before cooling off late in the summer.

His love for teaching other hitters the tricks of the trade helped reward him with a manager’s job in 1969 for Washington—where he gave the second version of the Senators their only winning record (86-76) before their move to Texas—but he lasted just four years, released after losing 100 for the 1972 Rangers.When he arrived at Boston training camp in 1938 as a tall, skinny 18-year-old prospect from San Diego, a brash Williams felt disrespect from Red Sox veterans and warned them that he’d soon be making more money than the rest of them put together.Williams quickly walked the walk after talking the talk, returning a year later following a monster warm-up at Triple-A Minneapolis and proceeded to become, arguably, the greatest hitter of all time.As talented as Speaker was with a bat, he was phenomenal as a center fielder; he co-owns the AL record for most assists in a season by an outfielder, with 35 (he did it twice, in 19), and he shares a major league record with four career double plays from the outfield.Speaker’s tenure in Boston ended early after just nine years; he refused to report in 1916 when the Red Sox wanted to cut his salary in half—all because his batting average had dropped three years in succession (never mind that it bottomed out at a still-sterling .322).
