Top 5 - Baseball Players from South Carolina

Here are who I consider the top 5 baseball players from South Carolina.

1. Shoeless Joe Jackson - 3rd highest career batting average of all time - yet never lead his league in batting. Not in Hall of Fame for obvious reasons
2. Larry Doby - Hall of Fame Outfielder - broke color line in the American League
3. Jim Rice - lead league in total bases 4 times, home runs 3 times and was 1978 AL MVP - should be in Hall of Fame
4. Willie Randolph - 6-time All-Star 2nd baseman for the Yankees
5. Reggie Sanders - one of six players in baseball history to have both 300+ HR and 300+ stolen bases

I think South Carolina is the first state where I picked five position players and no pitchers.
