First base is traditionally the place in the field for the team's "big bopper", and they don't come much bigger than Philadelphia's Ryan Howard - who is likely to act as their designated hitter in the games played at Tropicana Field under AL rules.
The 29-year-old Phillies slugger led the major leagues with 146 runs batted in during the regular season, while also launching 48 home runs - although 199 strikeouts contributed to his comparably low batting average of .251.
In front of Howard in the line-up, the Phillies have speed at the top of the order in shortstop Jimmy Rollins and second baseman Chase Utley, who are both three-time All-Stars.
Patrolling centre field is Hawaii-born switch-hitter Shane Victorino, who hit Philadelphia's first ever post-season grand slam in Game 2 of the National League Divisional Series against Milwaukee.
