Babe somewhere in the top 12, and Speaker in the top 20. He was smart, and had a quick release, but his shallow play led to most of his success.

In Saint Louis that summer (1920), three cowboys were ushered into the Yankee dressing room to meet Ruth. They told him they had ridden three days on horseback to catch a train in Wyoming. "Babe Ruth," one of them drawled, I’d have ridden all the way to Saint Louis to see you hit them home runs." - Kal Wagenheim
