Welcome to my page where I highlight the greatest baseball players of all time! If you've landed on this page, you're either a kid doing a report for school or a baseball purist, like myself, who can never get enough of taking that sweet walk down memory lane. I've chronicled the best players at each position as well as right handed pitchers, left handed pitchers and relievers. I've also touched on certain ethnic groups for those of you who value the roots of your heritage. Please enjoy the following articles as they art from the heart. I'm sure that you'll find some debatable and I'd love to hear your comments at the bottom of the page. I respect and welcome all opinions. Regardless, I think that we can all agree that we've been blessed to be baseball fans and I'm sure that we can agree on! Enjoy!
Greatest Right Handed Pitchers of All Time - None of us were around to see his performances, but thorough research suggests that Walter Johnson wins this vote in a landslide. In 1913, "Big Train" went an amazing 36-7 with a nasty 1.14 ERA. He led the league in K's 12 times and tossed an incredible 112 shutouts.
Greatest Left Handed Pitchers of All Time - Sandy Koufax is the undisputed king of this list. The Dodgers southpaw led the league in ERA in each of his last 5 seasons. He was forced to retire early at age 30 due to severe arthritis, but was as filthy as they come. Sandy achieved the "triple crown of pitching" (wins, ERA, and strikeouts) in 3 of his last 4 years. Other top lefties include the Lefty Grover, Randy Johnson, Steve Carlton and more!
Greatest Catchers of All Time - If Johnny Bench isn't the top dog on your list of top catchers, you're probably too young to have ever seen him play. He was a men amongst boys. He could hit a little too!
Greatest First Basemen of All Time - You won't get too much of an argument from anybody when you throw Lou Gehrig at the top of this list. After that, it's somewhat debatable. Loot shows off his baseball purity here by paying homage to slugger Jim Thome and one of the most underrated 1B ever in John Olerud.
Greatest Center Fielders of All Time - This list would make the hair stand up on the back of any baseball purists neck. So many highlights, so many memories. Not just anybody can play CF. These guys were special.
