On January 18, 2017, Ivan Rodriguez became the second Texas Rangers player elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Rodriguez won election with 76 percent of the vote, becoming only the second catcher ever to enter the Hall of Fame on the first ballot. How does he compare with his peers at demanding defensive positions: C, SS, 2B, CF, and 3B? NOTES: (1) A player is eligible to appear on this quiz if he played at least 50% of his games at any of these positions from 1991-2011. (2) Asterisk indicates the player is in the Hall of Fame. (3) Correct answers reveal the player's rank against all players in that statistic. For defensive awards and honors, this includes pitchers.
