- Paul Konerko (Chicago White Sox)– Providence, RI
We’ve got one more Rhode Islander here as Konerko represents the best first baseman from New England as, despite being raised in Arizona, Konerko was born in Providence. No longer as impressive a name as he was for much of the past decade, Konerko is slashing a meager .234/.274/.365 in his final season in Major League Baseball. However, the White Sox captain is a career .280/.355/.488 hitter with 439 home runs, 432 of which have come with the White Sox. Though he would not be a big bat for the New Englanders anymore, he does have a legitimate shot to reach the Hall of Fame in a few years.
