MLB's current third-base talent could be some of the best we've ever seen
As of 2017, there are only 16 third basemen enshrined in Cooperstown. You'd recognize the names: George Brett, Wade Boggs, Mike Schmidt, Brooks Robinson. Those men are four of the seven who have been voted in by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Seven others were voted in by the Veterans Committee, while the remaining two were voted in by the Negro Leagues Committee or another special committee.
