Who was the greatest Baseball player of all time? I included a list of perennial favorites.

Why Phil Rizzuto is on the list is that Ty Cobb once said that only Rizzuto and Musial could become stars back in the early 1900s. And who's to say he was wrong?

Personally, I think it has to be either Mays or his godson, Bonds. But because Bonds never made "The Catch", it's going to Mays.

Way too hard. You can't compare players from different decades. You can pick the best player of a decade, but not all time. How are they the best too? It's a personal desicion. Great fielding? Good hitting? It's just too hard to do.

How can you compare Bonds to Ty Cobb? They didn't even have BALCO back then B)

But in all seriousness, it's just too hard.

i voted for josh gibson.......everyone, black, white, or hispanic, feared his bat...and he was a pretty damn good catcher too.....i believe he hit over 800 homers in the negro leagues, which was much stiffer competition than the majors at the time.

Wow... that is one legendary list... Brass Bonanza said it was too too hard, and I'm going to agree with him...

But if I had to pick someone, it would have to be "SAY HEY" Willie Mays

How many other players hit more home runs than the rest of the league combined at any point in their careers?

Sadahara Oh, Josh Gibson. To name 2. (pure speculation, for argument's sake)

Amazing, you didn't have A-Rod on the list. You must not be a Yankee fan! Rock on! :flagusa:

I voted for Willie Mays.

A-rod isn't on the list because it's too early in his career. I have NO DOUBT that A-rod would make this list (and probably win) 10 years from now.

A-rod IS the best active AL player though. Just to make you happy.

I think it goes to Ruth. But a few questions though. I'm a Yankee fan, but why is Phil Rizzuto on the list?

Second, Where is Mickey Mantle???? Had it not been for DiMaggio causing Mantle to tear up his leg, Mantle would have been arguably the greatest all around player, with his power and speed. Despite that he should be on the list.

EDIT: I see your reasoning on Rizzuto, but I don't agree with that.

I think there is one particular player in his fourth season right now who's got a good chance to get on this list, but as for now...

I'm not gonna say anybody. I will say, the best way to compare two players of different eras is to see how much better the player was than his competition.

Heres one more thing to consider about the Babe he was a great pitcher too he had a lifetime record of 94-46 with a solid 2.28 ERA. Had he remained a pitcher he would be in the Hall as a Pitcher.
