The Carolina Mudcats are celebrating 30 years of baseball in Zebulon in 2020 and it’s time to revisit all of the all-time greats that have played at Five County Stadium over the years. To celebrate this year's 30th Anniversary Season the Mudcats have started an online bracket for fans to place their votes to determine the All-Time greatest player in team history.
So, who would you rank as the greatest player in Mudcats history? You can place your votes in our online bracket on Twitter.com/CarolinaMudcats and follow along with the results on this "The Greatest Mudcat of All-Time" page.
The players listed in the bracket are ranked by career WAR (from baseball-reference.com) accumulated during each player’s time in Major League Baseball. Exceptions were made for Travis Wood (2009 Mudcats), Mark Johnson (1992, 1993, 1994 Mudcats) and George Canale (1995 Mudcats) who had MLB career WAR totals of 7.1, 0.5 and 0.0 respectively. Those three each sit atop the Mudcats’ franchise record book in several categories. The list also excludes players who spent time with the Mudcats only as part of MLB rehab assignments.
