Box-Toppers all-time All-Star team (since 1995) consists of 3 active, 11 retired players
The Box-Toppers all-time All-Star team consists of the best players by position since Box-Toppers tracking began in 1995 and includes 11 players who have retired and three who are still active.
The alternate list of all-time active career Box-Toppers points leaders by position, includes those three active players from the “all-time” list and also includes three players among the 14 who announced their retirement, making 2015 their final season.
The three active players on the “all-time” All-Star list includes two New York Yankees and one Los Angeles Angel:
- DH—Alex Rodriguez of the Yankees leads active players with 187.0 Box-Toppers points and is ranked fourth since 1995.
- SP—CC Sabathia of the Yankees leads active pitchers with 179.0 points and is ranked fifth overall since 1995, fourth among pitchers.
- 1B—Albert Pujols of the Angels has 174.3 career Box-Toppers points and is ranked sixth overall since 1995, second among batters. Pujols also made Box-Toppers’ 2010-15 All-Star team as top American League designated hitter for the past six seasons with 52.4 Box-Toppers points.
Pitcher Randy Johnson leads the list of all-time All-Stars with 278.8 Box-Toppers points from 1995 to 2009. (He would likely have more Box-Toppers points if his entire career beginning in 1988 were tracked.)
The active career All-Star list of the 14 top players by position who were still active at the close of 2015 includes four players from the Yankees. In addition to Rodriguez and Sabathia, they are:
- OF—Carlos Beltran who has 98.9 career Box-Toppers points, second among active outfielders and 69th among all players since 1995. (Beltran will be the top-ranked active outfielder in 2016 since Torii Hunter of the Twins is retiring.)
- CA—Brian McCann who has 55.2 career Box-Toppers points. McCann also leads AL catchers in Box-Toppers points over three other time periods—2010-15, 2014-15 and 2015, making all three of those Box-Toppers’ All-Star teams.
Three of the 14 players on the active career All-Star list announced their retirement at the close of the 2015 season:
- SP—Tim Hudson of the Giants, with 157.0 career Box-Toppers points ranked fourth among active starting pitchers and 14th among all players since 1995. With Hudson’s retirement, Diamondbacks pitcher Zack Greinke (recently of the Dodgers) will become the fourth-ranked active pitcher in Box-Toppers points with 146.4.
- OF—Torii Hunter of the Twins, with 115.9 career Box-Toppers points, is ranked first among active outfielders, fifth among active batters and 43rd among all players since 1995. With Hunter’s retirement, Ryan Braun of the Brewers becomes the third-ranked active outfielder with 77.7 career Box-Toppers points.
- 3B—Aramis Ramirez of the Pirates, with 105.8 career Box-Toppers points, is ranked sixth among active batters and 58th among all players since 1995. With Ramirez’s retirement, Adrian Beltre of the Rangers becomes the top-ranked active career leader in Box-Toppers points among third basemen with 101.8.
Several players listed among Box-Toppers all-time All-Stars and all-time active All-Stars also appear on Box-Toppers’ other All-Star teams:
- Pujols, as previously mentioned, also is AL designated hitter on the 2010-15 All-Star team.

- McCann, as previously mentioned, is also AL catcher on Box-Toppers’ 2010-15, 2014-15 and 2015 All-Star teams.
- Felix Hernandez of the Mariners is second among active pitchers in career Box-Toppers points with 162.7. He is also among the top four AL pitchers making Box-Toppers’ 2010-15, 2014-15 and 2015 All-Star teams.
