MLB: Impressive, does not enter the Hall of Fame, but has better numbers than the “best player in history”

In rare cases and things in Major League Baseball, one of the most emblematic position players in the history of Atlanta Braves he put better numbers than he has Mike Trout so far with Los Angeles Angels. I mean Andrew Jones and ironically the one from Curaçao is not in the Hall of Fame.

Jones, now 45 years old, surpasses Trout in many offensive categories, taking into account the age range of 19 to 30 years and that is that both players debuted in the MLB as teenagers of 19 years. For a better idea, take a look at the following image with detailed information on both in their first 12 seasons in GL:

Andruw Rudolf Jones, a former center fielder, the same position Trout fills, outscored Mike in hits, RBIs, total bases, home runs, extra bases, and dWAR. Trout only trails Jones in runs scored and WAR.

10 years after his retirement in 2012, ‘The Curaçao Kid’ as Andruw is known, has not been chosen to enter the Hall Of Fame, the hall of immortals. He is something inexplicable for a man who won 10 Gold Gloves, a Silver Slugger, Player of the Year, five All Stars, among several other awards in a 17-year career. From 1998 to 2007 there was no better CF than Jones.

The only thing he lacked was to win the World Series, where he lost two (1996 and 1999, both against the New York Yankees, the club with which he said goodbye in GL. Still in 2013 and 14 he played in Japan with the Rakuten Golden Eagles, Giving 50 home runs adding up both years Will he be done justice one day by entering the HOF?

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover big events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), important players’ signatures. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as an amateur. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but baseball is in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS). , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it took almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to radio, providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
