Building the ‘5-Tool Player’ Using Stars from the 1980’s

Here’s another one of my many thoughts about the ‘5-Tool Player’

This time, I thought it would be interesting to see who people would select if they were building the perfect example of a ‘5-Tool Player’ using stars from the 1980’s.

The 80’s certainly had it’s share of excellent players and many fit the mold of what you would want from a player of this caliber.  But to create the best example of a ‘5-Tool Player’ you must pick 5 players; each with that 1 skill that made them stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

Same rules as before – if you pick a player for 1 category you cannot use him again for another one.

Here is my ‘robot’ using players strictly from the 1980’s…

Hitter for Power – Mike Schmidt

Hitter for Average – Wade Boggs

Base Running Ability – Rickey Henderson

Defensive Presence – Ozzie Smith

Arm Power and Accuracy – Andre Dawson

So, let me know which 5 players from the 1980’s you would use to develop the ultimate ‘5-tool’ player.

  1. My only change would have been Brett for Boggs. (I can live with Boggs)
    The others are perfect. Especially Ozzie!

  2. After seeking Boggs stats I can definately live with him hitting for average. .366 is just amazing! I didn’t realize his BA was so high through out his career.
