Very respectable career and, because of his position, he should be a shoe-in for the hall of fame.
From the article:
|As Kent formally announces his retirement Thursday at Dodger Stadium, his abrasive personality will take a back seat to the accomplishments that make him plaque-worthy. His 351 home runs as a second baseman are 74 more than Ryne Sandberg hit at the position, and he ranks second all-time in RBIs among second basemen to Nap Lajoie.|
In major league history, only 14 players have ever amassed 375 homers, 500 doubles and 1,500 RBIs. Twelve are in the Hall of Fame, and Andre Dawson is moving closer to Cooperstown after logging 67 percent of the vote this season.
No. 14, you must know by now, is Jeff Kent.
