3 – Granny Hamner (1944 – 1959)

Unlike Galvis, Hamner makes this list more for his longevity and offensive production. His .946 fielding percentage is 13 points below the league average. However, he was a key component to the 1950 “Whiz Kids” team that won the NL pennant. Hamner was a three-time All-Star who had 30 more doubles in a season four times. He had 21 home runs and 92 RBI in 1953 and a .299 average with 89 RBI in 1954. Hamner ranks second in franchise history among shortstops in doubles, home runs, RBI and is third in games, runs and hits.
