Best MLB Players of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Babe RuthGeorge Herman Ruth Jr., better known as Babe Ruth, was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935.

Ruth was more clutch than Mays... That's why he is number one. Mays might be the best baseball athlete of all-time

I wasn't around then. after reading some varied sources and opinions of MLB players he did hit all those HR's in larger stadiums most 400 feet at closest to the fence. or as one modern author explained of modern stadiums. " the season Ruth hit 100 Home Runs." furthermore he did so on
" Hot Dogs and Beer." No additional ingredients. - rangerover

He had so many home runs and he is so fat!
His most famous home run was the called shot - Ajkloth

2Ty Cobb
3Lou Gehrig

I read about him in school and he is very good

4Hank Aaron

755 home runs, 2,297,.305 AVG. Those are monster numbers but he played in a generation where the pitchers didn't get the special training that the pitchers now days do.

5Mickey Mantle

Three greatest players I ever saw, Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax, Mickey Mantle.
Mantle had it all, speed, power, great arm, great fielder, and the gold standard for switch hitters. Had it not been for Mantle Don Larsen would not have pitched a perfect game. Mantle's fantastic catch in that World Series
And his home run were the real highlights. Mickey simply put, was the Man!

6Willie Mays

Considering all around play he is the best. If Mays didn't play at candlestick he would have had 800 HR

11Roberto Clemente

Best player ever also best puertoriquan baseball player in history

12Nolan Ryan
13Derek Jeter

How are the top 5 formed no one actually saw them play, for all we know someone could have boosted their stats (Unlikely But Possible)

Derek Jeter is awesome with his off balenced throws and his hits unbelievible

14Chipper Jones

There will never be another chipper jones - Sabbath

Chipper IS AWESOME my favorite all time. Babe Ruth is good but Hammerin Hank Deserves first

15Ken Griffey, Jr.

Not only did Junior hit 630 homers, drive in 1,836 RBI, and have a very good career batting average of.284, but he was one of the most consistent hitters of all time, and played exceptional defense as well. Just and extremely athletic baseball player.

Griffey will always be the best in my book. He could do it all with ease.

Since I haven't found chipper jones ill have to choose Griffey - Sabbath
