Did you know that Jim Edmonds was ranked #12 by ESPN Analyst Rob Neyer in his list of the Top 100 Players of the Decade ( link Dale Murphy ." Join Baseball Almanac as we take a look at some additional numbers of interest as they relate to one of the best defensive centerfielders ever:

1 - Jim Edmonds "only" won one Silver Slugger Award (in 2004), but he was a consistent slugger finishing his career with eleven 20-home run seasons, five 30-home run seasons and two 40-home run seasons.

2.5 - Jim Edmonds appeared on the National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot in 2016, but only received 2.5% of the votes (11 out of 440), removing him from future ballots (at least 5% of the writers must select the player to remain on the following ballot).

8 - Jim Edmonds won eight Gold Glove Awards in the outfield and when he retired, the only outfielders with nine or more were Roberto Clemente (12), Willie Mays (10), Ken Griffey, Jr. (10) and Al Kaline (10).

12 - Jim Edmonds finished twelfth in the Top 100 Players of the Decade, those ahead of him were 11. Scott Rolen , 10. Johan Santana , 9. Roy Halladay , 8. Todd Helton , 7. Chipper Jones , 6. Carlos Beltran , 5. Ichiro Suzuki , 4. Derek Jeter , 3. Barry Bonds , 2. Alex Rodriguez , 1. Albert Pujols .

42 - Jim Edmonds hit forty-two home runs with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2000 - the most in franchise history, during a single season, by a Cardinals outfielder.

372 - Jim Edmonds hit three-hundred ninety-three home runs during his career; three-hundred seventy-two as a centerfielder (8 were at first, 6 at left field, 4 as a pinch hitter, 2 as a right fielder, 1 as a designated hitter). The only Hall of Fame Center Fielders with more homers, Willie Mays , Mickey Mantle , Andre Dawson , and Duke Snider .

The St. Louis Cardinals fans inducted Jim Edmonds (and Willie McGee ) into the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame in 2014, one of twenty-six enshrined in the Red Birds Hall of Fame at the time: Jim Bottomley , Ken Boyer , Lou Brock , Jack Buck, August A. "Gussie" Busch, Jr., Dizzy Dean , Frankie Frisch , Bob Gibson , Chick Hafey , Jesse Haines , Whitey Herzog , Rogers Hornsby , Tony La Russa , Marty Marion , Joe Medwick , Johnny Mize , Stan Musial , Branch Rickey , Red Schoendienst , Mike Shannon , Enos Slaughter , Ozzie Smith , Billy Southworth and Bruce Sutter .

Jim Edmonds Catching
Jim Edmonds Catching Collage | Photoshop by Baseball Almanac, Inc.
Major League Baseball Network has a network show called Prime Nine that rates the top nine players and/or events for different categories and they selected the best nine centerfielders ever in this order: 9. Kirby Puckett , 8. Jim Edmonds, 7. Duke Snider , 6. Ken Griffey, Jr. , 5. Joe DiMaggio , 4. Tris Speaker , 3. Mickey Mantle , 2. Ty Cobb , 1. Willie Mays . Jimmy Baseball was described by Fox Sports ('Best Center Fielders Ever', Link ) with "May be the best defensive center fielder of all-time, with apologies to Willie Mays . He made more wall-climbing catches than anybody in history. When he robbed Cincinnati's Adam Dunn of home runs three times in one season, Dunn said, 'I'm never hitting the ball to center field again when he's out there. Edmonds won eight Gold Gloves over a nine-year period and hit .284 for his career."
