Best MLB Players of All Time

The Top Ten

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.

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

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.

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.

No one and I mean no one tops The Babe.

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.

Best and most versatile player of all time

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

He is the goat

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

Ty Cobb

He is great

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 ...read more.

I read about him in school and he is very good

Hank Aaron Henry Louis Aaron, nicknamed "Hammer" or "Hammerin' Hank", is a retired American Major League Baseball right fielder who serves 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.

Most homeruns. Case closed

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!

Pete Rose
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.
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

He should be the worst

He was still a beast with the bat even before he took roids

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)

He should be higher on the lis

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

Chipper Jones

There will never be another chipper jones

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

Um
1. chipper jones is great but doesn't deserve to be this high
2. babe ruth by the way is the greatest all time and is better then hank aaron
3. hank aaron is one of the reates all time but not better then the bambino

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.

Worst of all time

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

Jeff Bagwell

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

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.

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!

Best closing pitcher ever

Honus Wagner

He was the best game of his time

Greatest

George Brett
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.

Shane Victorino

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

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

He shouldn't be on the list

Joe Jackson
