All-Time Top 100 – #87

With 87 days until Opening Day, let’s take a look at Ozzie Timmons, the #87 player in our All-Time Top 100 Atlantic League Players!

#87 – Ozzie Timmons

Atlantic City (2003 – ’06)

Corner Outfield

Ozzie Timmons spread 311 games across 4 Atlantic League seasons while sprinkling 74 home runs and 224 RBI throughout those games. Timmons retired after the 2006 season, leaving the Atlantic League with a .297/.383/.568 slash, just missing a .300 average due to his first 14-game stint in the league in 2003. He posted 11.3 WAR and a 142 OPS+, but when it comes to what landed him in our Top 100, Ozzie’s 2004 season would be enough on its own.

Timmons terrorized Atlantic League pitching over the course of 77 games in 2004, racking up 21 home runs, 45 extra-base hits, and RBI. Ozzie led the league in batting average (.373), on-base (.442), and slugging (.683), as well as OPS+ (180). The Mets organization came calling for Timmons in early-August, robbing us of the completion of a season in which was on pace for 34 home runs, 119 RBI, and 7.8 WAR. Even cut short, Ozzie Timmons’ 2004, as well as his well-above-average next 2 seasons (131 OPS+), have earned him the #87 spot in our Top 100.
