Rating the best outfields

How's this for an outfield? The 1925 Tigers had Harry Heilmann, who led the American League with a .393 average. They also had Ty Cobb, who hit .378, and Al Wingo, who batted .370. How about the outfield for the 1930 Cubs? Hack Wilson, Kiki Cuyler and Riggs Stephenson averaged batting .358 with 131 RBI. Obviously, we'll never see that type of production, not even during this explosive era. Still, there are some good outfields out there.

So, as we wonder how good the Yankees' Hideki Matsui will be, and as we watch who will emerge to play alongside Barry Bonds in San Francisco, here are the top 10 outfields in the majors. Limiting it to 10 was the hard part.
