    Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls - it's more democratic.-Crash Davis

      There are tons of early players who could have easily made the line-up such as:

      Hugh Duffy (5'7)
      "Dummy" Hoy (5'6)
      Tommy Leach (5'6)
      Clark Griffith (5'6)
      Bob Caruthers (5'7)
      Larry Corcoran (5'3)!

        Bobby Shantz was the one I thought of right away, too.

          Paul Waner was 5'8 and weighed in at 153. Lloyd was an inch taller but weighed three pounds less!

            Hmmm, All-Time Height teams. Maybe that's something I can add to the Baseball Gauge

              How could he leave Larry off? He won 177 games and threw three no-hitters! And hes 4 inches shorter than Dolf Luque.
