Inspired by Bill Burgess, I wanted to start an ongoing discussion about Sadaharu Oh. Jim Albright has done some incredible research on him I am convinced Oh is one of the 5-7 greatest first basemen of all time.

In 1978 a boy moved in across the street from me. He was from Japan. He always talked about the great Sadaharu Oh. He even had some photos and baseball cards of him. I've always be a fan of his ever since even though I never got to see him play.
