The First Base position has always been a power spot, with just a couple of exceptions. The greatest first basemen are a collection of the greatest hitters in history, with eight of the ten in the Hall of Fame, and the other two almost certain to be in Cooperstown at some point in the 21st century. This was one difficult list to put together but I did my best, enjoy!
