Greatest Major League Hitters Ever
The Top Ten
Just think what the Babe could have done if was healthy. He did this all while eating Hot Dogs, drinking Beer and smoking Cigars. - haineroid
just think if Ruth played 20 years like Aaron did... he would be untouchable.
Defiantly could have been the best
Held very many batting records - Ajkloth
He is the best pure hitter. Last person to bat. 400. (Even if he was a douche bag) - Cbatower
Teddy Baseball was the Sweetest Hitter of All..
Splendid! Simply, well..."Splendid! " Just saying'
Could of had the most home runs and hits
he had the home runs and the hits and one many awards and is in the top ten for many things including doubles, home runs, hits, and runs
aaron could do everything (doubles, triples, home runs). Top 5 player. Jackie Robinson is definetely not even in the top 20 - peru12345
hank aaron is the player of all time and screw barry bonds.
2nd best player of all time (1 is Jackie robinson) - Music
The only reason he dosent have the most home runs is because he didn't think home runs mattered. He prooved it when he hit 9 home runs in 3 games.
What you said impressed me, so I've been searching and googling trying to find out when Cobb hit 9 home runs in 3 games. But I haven't found any other mention of that. Can you give me any backup to that claim?
Great five tool player! Great personality and team spirit! Exciting player who played with gusto and flair. Willie excelled in every facet of the game! Adored by millions despite playing in an era when some media were racially biased to downplay his greatness and elevate his counterparts.
The greatest 5 tool player of all time. Mays, as a pure hitter, played in two of baseballs most difficult parks to hit home runs, as opposed to Aaron who played in two if the easiest homer parks. in a more fair stadium he would have more homers than Aaron.
Hitting includes slugging, but also the other hits along with the home runs. The best hitters have lots of singles, doubles, triples, and homers. Willie Mays has more Total Bases than anyone besides Hank Aaron and Stan Musial.
If he could have stayed healthy his whole career he would own the home run record - crazyeyes56
Griffey was great and was lingered by some injuries
If he would of never got en injured would of been #1
Nothing to say just. BEAST
Best overall hitter I've ever seen. Hank and babe are better but Pete is a legend.
Over 4000 hits got to give him some credit
Had the most hits ever with 4,256 hits
He's got the record idiots
Yikes. Severely overrated and that's coming from a Yankee fan. Yeah, cool, he was good in the postseason, a really nice guy, and happened to be on the Yankees when they were really good. I'm not gonna say he's a bad player, but for a shortstop, he's mediocre at best defensively. Good hitter, but not near the best. - jayfowler
Hit his 3000TH hit with a home run at Yankee Stadium. 2nd best hitter ever
Hit his 3000TH hit with a home run at Yankee Stadium. 2nd best hitter ever.
all that needs to be said in he's the big hurt! - Pag1
R.I.P Tony Gwynn, San Diego will never forget you.
Mantle played his entire career on bad legs and still put up statistics that should rank him in the top 10
Derek Jeter ahead of "The Mick"?
It's hard to go against The Babe, but it's completely ridiculous that Gehrig isn't on this list yet, so he gets my vote.
The Lou Gehrig behind Derek Jeter? Jeter doesn't belong in the top 50.
THE BEST HITTER IN THE MLB, HE ALWAYS HAS 40 H. R, 100 OF RBI'S, STOLEN BASES, HITS AND EVERYTHING ELSE. HE LETS THE BAT TALK FOR HIM. - JESSIEMEN
Regardless of roids. still one of the best ever
Hes in the 500 home run club and he has a over. 300 career batting average
Goodness. How soon people forget. At least top ten, best player in baseball for 7 years straight. Power, average, D...el hombre is the greatest.
Gibson is in the same league with Ruth and Williams.
