Babe Ruth is a house hold for all of his great achievements. He was one of the greatest baseball players of the 1920. He played multiple major league positions but what made him famous was his bat. He was a outstanding power hitter. What most people don't know about how hard it would have been to hit so many in the twentys. The twentys was well before the drying process of maple and ash we're invented so his bat was of 50 oz compared to the 30 oz bats today. This era was also before there was any porfomance enhancing drugs on the market so there could have been no possible steriod use. The equipment was also not up to par with the gloves after small and not much padding and the cleats not very well made. These are all things that major league players today have access to. To conclude Babe Ruth is one of the best power hitters to play the game.

Pete Rose is no doubt one of the best baseball players to live. He has Broken 14 major league records. The most prestigious being the most lifetime hits at 4,256 lifetime hits. He is also the only player to be voted in to the all star game at 5 different positions. He created the phrase "petty" which was what they called his glorious head first slide into second. He played 1B 2B 3B RF and LF. He was one of the most versatile players to ever play the game. Still to this day in he is not in the hall of fame. He was caught gambling by betting on his own team in a game. This is why Pete Rose was one of the best baseball players to ever live

Have you ever sat down and watched a baseball game? Have you ever sat down and watched a game with Derek Jeter on the field? Every time Jeter is on the field he manages to do something great. Wether it is diving for a ball, hitting a guy in, or making a great throw. Jeter even caned the phrase "Jeter throw" since he made so many throws in mid air. Derek is one of few players to achieve over 3,000 hits in his career. Witch is a stat that has only been achieved by only 29 all time players. Jeter has also never been ejected from a game due to arguing with an umpire about a bad call. Jeter isn't just great for what he did on the field either, Derek has started up many charities and organizations to help people in need because he feels he needs to give back. These are just a few of the reasons of why Jeter is and always will be one of the greats.
