Cleveland Quiz: The Pinch Runners



Last week, we took a look at the "best" bench guys when it came to hitting, now let's turn our attention to the "best" guys to use when we need to score in the late innings. As with the pinch hitters, there are no records prior to 1919 readily avaialble for this, so no need to guess Lajoie era players.

Also, as there are a lot fewer chances for this, we will limit this to the Top 10.
