      6'8", 250 and a build like that? Yes, he probably could of been one hell of a power hitter / first baseman.

        I see him more as a pitcher.

          No idea, but Michael Jordan couldn't hit to save his life, so there's that precedent. Hitting Major League pitching is supposedly the hardest thing in sports to do.

            I thought playing for Finley was the hardest thing to do in baseball....

              Plus he doesn't have the toughness of Jordan. He's almost like a child. Last night he had a great game but will he show up for game 7. He cant even handle big games in his own sport, how the heck could he excel in baseball.

                He actually did receive a contract offer from the Lake Erie Crushers of the independent league before he left Cleveland. It was probably a publicity stunt more than anything, but still, it would have been interesting if he gave it a go.

                  Supposedly? Do you need someone other than Ted Williams to say it to convince you?

                      Hey, at least Ted did it clean.

                        If hitting a baseball is the hardest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest...
                        Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

                        If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

                          During the N.B.A. lockout he said he was going to play tight-end in the N.F.L.

                          I think Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll even Tweetered about it, asking him to come try out for the Seahawks!

                            I'm assuming Blackout wants a nice old fashioned debate over "are championships and postseason success necessary to be considered an all time great" and equating LeBron with the likes of Ty Cobb, Ted Williams and Barry Bonds and other baseball all time legends without even a decent postseason resume.

                              no

                              I want to know if Lebron would have translated into a good baseballer and if he had played at any level before this
