Acknowledged as one of the finest fielding centerfielders of all time, Speaker's ability to swoop around the field got him the "eagle" part of his nickname, while the “grey” was a nod to his prematurely grey hair. “The Grey Eagle” was also an accomplished hitter with a career .345 batting average. What, did you think that they let people into the Hall of Fame just for glove? Sorry, Rey Ordonez.
