We go back to the 1800’s for our next selection with John Morrill who was a competent hitter who had 1,247 Hits for the Beaneaters but it was his versatility on defense that made him exceptionally valuable.  Morrill played Second Base, Third Base, First Base, Shortstop and Outfield over his career and regardless of the position, he did it very well.  Morrill was not a star in his time, but he was one of the first players of note that had incredible value that did not always reflect on a stat sheet.
