              Nolan Ryan is correct. Niekro and Musial are incorrect and Ted Williams was already guessed correctly by PVNICK.

                    Jim O'Rourke and Eddie Collins. I said like 8 guys off the top of my head and finally looked them up because I could no longer wait.

                    "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

                          1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

                            I think Mickey Vernon did it.
