I've been thinking about this topic a lot lately. I keep wondering how players from the 20's,30's and 40's were do against todays players.
Now days you have situational lefties, a bullpen, in depth scouting reports, players being advanced at a much younger age.
In the early part of the century you had heavier bats, higher mound, spit balls, 12 bus trips from city to city versus 3 hour flights, career ending injuries that would take 6 months to heel now because of surgery.
I was hoping to learn more based on posts from you all because this is something I'd like to learn more about.
One arguement I've heard is that nobody will ever hit .400 again because of the way pitching has became so important and advanced compared to decades ago.
Then you have the argument that if the field demensions would the same years ago as they were not Babe Ruth might have hit 104 home runs in 1921.
But you also have the rule that foul balls were not counted as strikes for part of the dead ball era.
