    IMO, Hornsby!
    1968 and 1984, the greatest ever.

      I say Ruth
      "I was pitching one day when my glasses clouded up on me. I took them off to polish them. When I looked up to the plate, I saw Jimmie Foxx. The sight of him terrified me so much that I haven't been able to wear glasses since." - Left Gomez

        I haven't made a list of my top hiters, but as it is, I would go with:

        Williams
        Ruth
        Cobb
        ...
        Hornsby


        Hornsby was great, but Cobb just had WAY too much power for Hornsby to overcome, even with positional adjustments. No amount of defense can make up those 200+ HR's that Ruth beats him by.

        Hornsby may be number 2 in BA, but Ruth is not that far behind, being 10th all-time himself, only 16 points behind. Now normally that would be considered a lot, but Ruth also has a 40 point lead in OBP, and an astounding 113 point lead in Slugging!!!

        So in the end, it isn't even close, Ruth wins by a mile.

          4. Ty Cobb

          7. Zack Wheat
          8. Eddie Roush
          9. Al Simmons
          10. Ken Williams/Hack Wilson

            Not a bad list, Bill. Goose Goslin and Sam Rice definitely should be on there though, certainly ahead of Collins, Wheat, and Wilson.
