slides: Greatest Athletes In Rhode Island History: West Bay

Saturday, July 28, 2012

 

The West Bay list is all about power.

Whether it's boxing legend Vinny Pazienza knocking opponents' lights out, Super Bowl champion Mark van Eeghen bruising his way into the end zone, or Baseball Hall of Famer Hugh Duffy pounding balls off the fences en route to hitting for the highest average in baseball history in 1894, West Bay athletes know how to pack a punch.

This list is full of hard-hitters. From NHL stars to NASCAR record-holders, and former No. 1 picks--even a women's baseball legend--the West Bay owns a fearsome group of great former athletes.

So buckle up, and brace yourself---this list ain't for the faint of heart.
