Barry Larkin


September 3, 2013 by Elizabeth Metz


Shortstop, 1986-2004. Inducted 2008.

Considered a 5-tool player, Larkin was (historically speaking) an important bridge between the all-field shortstops of the preceding decades and the offense-minded shortstops of the 90s and 2000s. In 1996, he became the first shortstop in history to hit at least 30 home runs and steal at least 30 bases in one season. Larkin was a 12-time All-Star, 9-time Silver Slugger, 3-time Gold Glove winner, and the National League MVP in 1995.  He batted .353 in the 1990 World Series and played his entire 19-year career in his hometown of Cincinnati.  Inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2012.
