    Best examples of a player taking over for a legend

    All legends eventually retire and the guy who takes over has impossible shoes to fill.

    But sometimes they are "successful"

    Can you name some?

    Here's mine.

    No one expected Didi Gregorius to do this well and make the "Jeter transfer" go so smoothly.

    Maaaaaaaaaan, Cardinals fans hated (and still hate) Tino Martinez.

    I loved him, and still do though.

    See Red Sox LF
    Yaz for Ted Williams
    Jim Rice for Yaz
    Mike Greenwell for Jim Rice

    Interesting that it was 3 straight HOFers but the replacement was always a tier lower. Then Greenwell who was just an all-star.

    The Williams to Yaz to Rice chain is impressive, three consecutive hall of famers.
