Mike Schmidt’s unprecedented combination of power and defense molded him into one of baseball’s greatest third basemen. The powerful right-handed hitter slugged 548 career home runs — belting 40 or more round trippers in three separate seasons and 30 or more HRs 10 other times.

Schmidt established a MLB record for third basemen by clouting 48 homers in 1980, and once hit four consecutive round-trippers in a single game. A three-time National League MVP, he was a 12-time All-Star, won 10 Gold Gloves and was named The Sporting News Player of the Decade for the 1980s.

PHILLIES ALL-TIME ROSTER

In 18 years with the Philadelphia Phillies, Schmidt amassed 106.5 WAR (wins above replacement). The franchise’s next biggest WAR contributions on the all-time roster come from pitchers Robin Roberts (69.7) and Steve Carlton (64.6).
