All-Time Giants/Rangers Team
A historic glance at the best of both franchises.
By: Charlie Miller | 11/1/10, 10:41 AM EDT
Just having a little fun researching during the World Series, we select our All-Time Giants-Senators/Rangers Team. This exclusive club is for players who spent time with both organizations. With the Senators entering the American League in 1961, the player pool is limited, but two members of the Hall of Fame made this team, and a future Hall of Fame shortstop is on the list as well. The criteria is based on the entire careers of players who suited up for both franchises, not just their time with the teams. Our thanks to Baseball-Reference.com for all the baseball information fans could ever want, right at their fingertips.
