Best MLB Players of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Babe Ruth George 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.

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.

Remember that year when Babe Ruth hit more home runs than every team in the league? That will never happen again, I can guarantee you.

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

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

2 Ty Cobb
3 Willie Mays Willie Howard Mays, Jr., nicknamed "The Say Hey Kid", is an American former Major League Baseball center fielder who spent almost all of his 22-season career playing for the New York/San Francisco Giants, before finishing with the New York Mets.

Some people need to understand the history of the game when voting. No current player is a top ten player of all time.

Wmays was more clutch than Ruth...That's why he's number one. Ruth might be the best pitcher-outfielder of all-time.

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

Best and most versatile player of all time

4 Lou Gehrig Henry Louis Gehrig, nicknamed "the Iron Horse", was an American baseball first baseman who played his entire professional career in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees, from 1923 until 1939. Gehrig was renowned for his prowess as a hitter and for his durability, which earned him his nickname "the Iron Horse." He was an All-Star seven consecutive times, a Triple Crown winner once, an American League Most Valuable Player twice, and a member of six World Series champion teams.

I read about him in school and he is very good

5 Hank Aaron Henry Louis Aaron, nicknamed "Hammer" or "Hammerin' Hank", was an American Major League Baseball right fielder who served as the senior vice president of the Atlanta Braves.

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.

6 Pete Rose

He might not be in the hall of fame but he was better then 90% of the players in there. That's a fact.

7 Mickey 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!

8 Joe DiMaggio Joseph Paul DiMaggio, nicknamed "Joltin' Joe" and "The Yankee Clipper", was an American baseball center fielder who played his entire 13-year career in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees.

Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio the nation turns its lonely eyes to you

9 Jackie Robinson Jack Roosevelt Robinson was an American professional baseball player who became the first African American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era.

The world of baseball will never forget the day he broke the Color Barrier.

He's the fastest mlb player of all time!

He changed the game

The Contenders
11 Nolan Ryan Lynn Nolan Ryan Jr., nicknamed The Ryan Express, is a former Major League Baseball pitcher and a previous chief executive officer of the Texas Rangers. He is currently an executive adviser to the owner of the Houston Astros.
12 Roberto Clemente Roberto Enrique Clemente Walker was a Puerto Rican professional baseball right fielder who played 18 seasons in Major League Baseball for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Best player ever also best puertoriquan baseball player in history

13 Barry Bonds Barry Lamar Bonds is an American former professional baseball left fielder who played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball with the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants.

Should be top tens. He was an amazing player, even if steroids were in use.

He should be the worst

14 Mike Trout Michael Nelson "Mike" Trout, nicknamed The Millville Meteor, is an American professional baseball center fielder for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of Major League Baseball.

The closest thing to Willie Mays there ever was!

Worst of all time

15 Jeff Bagwell

Bagwell was one of the best right handed 1st baseman of all time and was one of the greatest hitters as well.

16 Derek Jeter Derek Sanderson Jeter is an American former professional baseball shortstop, current businessman and baseball executive who is the chief executive officer and part owner of the Miami Marlins of Major League Baseball.

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

He should be higher on the lis

17 Chipper Jones

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

There will never be another chipper jones

18 Ken 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

He did it all steroid free

19 Honus Wagner

He was the best game of his time

20 Miguel Cabrera José Miguel Cabrera Torres, commonly known as Miguel Cabrera and nicknamed "Miggy", is a Venezuelan professional baseball first baseman who plays for the Detroit Tigers of Major League Baseball.
21 Mariano Rivera Mariano Rivera is a Panamanian-American former professional baseball pitcher who played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees, from 1995 to 2013. Nicknamed "Mo" and "Sandman", he spent most of his career as a relief pitcher and served as the Yankees' closer for 17 seasons.

Mariano Rivera is a Panamian Closing pitcher who was born 11-29-1969 and played all of his 19 seasons with the New York Yankees, and he broke the most career save record with 652 saves, and first broke it in 2011, 2 years before he retired!

A legend who can't be replaced

Best closing pitcher ever

22 George Brett
23 Shane Victorino

Every team wanted Shane. He was a very well rounded player

Shouldn't be on the list but I love this guy

He shouldn't be on the list

24 Albert Pujols José Alberto Pujols Alcántara is a Dominican American professional baseball first baseman for the Los Angeles Angels of Major League Baseball.

492 home runs, 1,498 RBI,.321 AVG, and he's only played 13 years in the bigs. Even though he career isn't over yet, he's definitely one of the greatest baseball players of all time.

25 Pedro Martinez Pedro Jaime Martínez, is a Dominican former professional baseball starting pitcher, who played in Major League Baseball from 1992 to 2009, for five teams - most notably the Boston Red Sox from 1998 to 2004.

219-100 win-loss ratio, 2.93 ERA, 3,154 stikeouts. Dominate numbers right there. I wanted to put him closer to number one but Pujols had a longer span of success.
