Chicago Cubs: Starting things off in left field

Left Field

Starter: Billy Williams

Williams played 16 out of his 18 years professionally in a Cubs uniform. In those 16 years, Williams was named an All-Star six different times. His list of achievements is fantastically amazing as he was named the 1961 National League Rookie of the Year, 1972 Major League Player of the Year and won the 1972 NL batting title.

Statistically, Williams has hit 392 home runs in the 2,213 games he appeared for as a Cub. In 8,479 at-bats, Williams tore the cover off the ball, totaling 2,510 hits, 402 of them were doubles. Williams was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1987.

Backup: Alfonso Soriano

Soriano spent seven years in Chicago after joining the club via free agency in 2006. During the 889 games spent with the Cubs, Soriano stole 70 bases, along with his speed on the base path he also had some power at the plate as he hit 181 home runs in a Cubs uniform. As a two time All-Star with Chicago, Soriano won a Silver Slugger award in 2006.
