There was so many great hitters in the history of baseball, but I believe they can only be one. Pete Rose is the all-time hits leader, Williams hit .400 during a full season, Ty Cobb won a lot of batting titles, Dimmagio has the 56 game hitting streak, Ichiro has the most hits in a season, there's so many possiblities. Who do you think is the best of all time and why?

wow...no matter what anybody says in this thread, no one person can be 100% right...this is going to take some serious thought. It's not fair though b.c. I only know the players of the 90's to the present. I'd probably have a biased view b.c. I can't fairly judge the "back in the day" guys.

If one is going to define who the greatest hitter was/is...one must take into consideration, just what in fact is the purpose and intent of the hitter....and once this is defined, simply answer the question "honestly" and without subjective opinions only to favorites. I had to place these rules within the context of my answer to make it fair....due to the fact "I" hated to see this man come to town, not a personal hatred, but a hatred earned on the field. For this man used my team and beat them so severly.....(THE CINCY REDS) as if they were a stepchild and redheaded as well. I always prayed that he would be out for at least the series that he played MY REDS....nothing serious, just a 72 hr bug...or a slight sprain...but man he NEVER missed a game it seemed. Of course, I am speaking of the one and only "BAD HENERY".....he had many nicknames but this is the one I used....for that is just what he was.....BAD...EVIL....not in the way of humanity....but in the use of baseball terminology....this man was simply BAD!!!!

If one wants to find who was the best.....find the one that produced the most. And there was "none" better at producing runs than...Henery Louis Hank Aaron. I would not consider him a friend nor I assume neither would most that stood in his way....he was just the best, and you "HAD" to give him respect....for he did not request it with his mouth......as many in todays game do....IE...Barry(Baby).......he demanded it...on the field, and he got it! I mean they tried everything to stop him....they would save their best pitcher just for him....they would have "special" infield shifts set up...as they "tried" to spot pitch to him.....none of it worked, to my dismay. I just loved to hate this man, but as I said....deep inside you find yourself...cheering, just because of the talent and sensation of the vacum that would come over the crowd as he steped to the plate, as it seemed that you could feel everyone take in a DEEP breath all at the same time.....I "think" that "I" was more nervous than the pitcher...and often as not I only "listened" on the radio....but the way "JOE NUXHALL" described it....it was just like being there. Here are the reasons Henery....was sooo BAD.......I just could not resist this quote that I personally remember being made by "LET'S PLAY TWO ERNIE BANKS" concerning HANK....the first time that he had seen Hank hit a HR...."Well, I was playing shotstop, when he hit the ball.....I honestly thought that I could catch the line drive that was "screaming" at me.....I jumped, but it was clear that it was out of my reach.....when I turned, my jaw dropped....I could not believe that the ball could have cleared the fence on the line that it was hit."

755 HRs....."JUICE FREE"
24 or more HRs for almost 20 years striaght 55-75
the only player to hit 30 or more HRs for 15 straight years
only 1 of 4 to have 150 or more hits....for 17 years in a row
ALL STAR Team....20 years in row
The "MOST" ever RBIs 2,297
The "MOST" extra base hits 1,477
The "MOST" total bases 6,856
And in the top 5 of all time for hits and runs scored

The best HITTER of all time should have the best production.......no words are needed, as with in his playing career....the production demands the respect. BD

It is not even close. The greatest hitter, and the greatest player of all time was Babe Ruth. Even with the questions about Barry, Ruth still had better seasons than Barry's best. Just take a look at some of the things Ruth did when few were even close.

And, Ruth was a great pitcher who might have been a Hall of Famer if he continued to pitch. If there were no Black Sox scandal, would Ruth have become a pitcher?

My first evidence in my case for Williams as the greatest hitter ever is his lost time to wars. His zip projections from Baseball Think Factory:

I personally believe that Ruth was the greatest hitter of all time. Ruth won 12 Home Run titles and six RBI crowns. He led the Major Leagues in slugging thirteen times, runs scored seven times, and On-Base Percentage eleven times.

His career totals for home runs (714), runs scored (2,174) and walks (2,062) are all the third best ever. He is also first in career Slugging Percentage at .690, second in RBI with 2,217, second in On-Base Percentage at .474, and first in OPS, at an unheard of 1.164. He also hit .342. The scary thing about Ruth is that for the first five years of his career, he was the best left-handed pitcher in the American League. His first full season as a hitter didn't come until 1919.

He didn't win tons of batting titles like Cobb did, he wasn't the all time hit leader, but if you combine all the hitting categories, he's the best in my opinion.

Someone above mention the overshift that has been used on sluggers and mentioned Aaron, I don't know if you were insinuating that it was first used for Aaron, but it was actually first used by a managed of I think the Rangers or Orioles against Ted Williams.

The top 2 guys with really good cases for it are Ted Williams and Babe Ruth. Cobb was a great average hitter but didn't have the power to be the greatest hitter ever, same with Ichiro, Dimaggio's power numbers are good, but not as much as Ruth and Williams. If you asked this same question in, say, 10-15 years the answer would probably be A-Rod, but hes not there yet. Now, George Steinbrenner himself has called Ted Williams the greatest hitter to ever live, and thats coming from the YANKEES owner, so I am going to side with a Yankee guy, for once, on this. I'll provide more info as to why I think this later.

The Babe

I created a list and tried to evaluate numerically the greatest seasons offensively. Babe Ruth is on the lsit more than any of the players:


HELP! How do I load an excel list?
