Ultimate "Other" All Time First Baseman

Sadaharu Oh and Hank Aaron

Sadaharu Oh
Arguably the greatest Japanese player of all time, Oh dominated Japanese baseball during his 22 year career that ran from 1959-1980. The slugger set home run records that are unlikely to ever be broken, most notably his career total of 868, which is over 100 homers more than Hank Aaron. The Yomiuri Giants first baseman won 15 home run titles during his career, including a high of 55 in 1964. He was also a consistent hitter and showed a good batting eye--accepting 2504 bases on balls over his career and hitting more home runs than strikeouts. Oh won five batting crowns, two triple crowns in 1973 and 1974, and was named the Central League MVP nine times. His team won 14 Central League titles and 11 Japan Series championships (including 9 consecutive).
