RANKED: 30 Greatest Shortstops of All-Time

28. Dave Concepcion


Overshadowed by Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, and Joe Morgan while playing with The Big Red Machine, Concepcion put together a career worthy of great admiration. A 9-time All-Star, Concepcion was one of the best infielders in baseball for much of his career.

From 1974-1977, Concepcion won four consecutive Gold Gloves, winning his fifth and final in 1979. Teaming up with Morgan in the middle of the diamond provided the Reds with one of the most productive middle infields in history. Concepcion was also a 2-time Silver Slugger winner with Cincinnati. While he may not have had the best career of the vaunted Reds — back-to-back World Series Champions (1975, 1976) — Concepcion has since had his No. 13 retired by the Reds.
