The top three vote-getters among American League outfielders were Rickey Henderson, Dave Winfield, and Jose Canseco.

Canseco went on to win the AL MVP Award on the strength of the first-ever 40 home run/40 stolen base season.

Coming in second for the MVP Award was Mike Greenwell, who believes he should be retroactively honored due to Canseco’s admitted steroid use.

Kirby Puckett rounds out (no pun intended) the AL outfield in 1988.

Was anyone snubbed? The players would have added Cleveland outfielder Joe Carter to the roster ahead of Henderson, but since the fans get to select the starters, Carter stayed home.
