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?
