The Top Ten

1 Babe Ruth 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.

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

2 Hank Aaron

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.

Hank Aaron is definitely the greatest hitter - Htown3ball

3 Ted Williams

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..

Could of had the most home runs and hits

4 Ty Cobb

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.

5 Stan Musial
6 Pete Rose

Best overall hitter I've ever seen. Hank and babe are better but Pete is a legend.

Pete was an amazing hitter for the Cincinnati Reds during the 70s - Ajkloth

7 Ken Griffey Jr.

If he could have stayed healthy his whole career he would own the home run record - crazyeyes56

8 Willie Mays

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.

9 Lou Gehrig

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.

10 Derek Jeter

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.
