2. Babe Ruth
“The Sultan of Swat” or “The Bambino” needs no introduction. Not only was he an amazing hitter, he finished his career with 94 Wins and a 2.28 ERA. His 714 Home Runs (3rd), .474 OBP (2nd), 3,673 Runs Produced (3rd), 2,062 Walks (3rd), and his .342 Batting Average (8th) show offensive force Ruth was. His 2,213 RBIs are 2nd to only Hank Aaron. There’s no way anyone can doubt the dominating presence that was Babe Ruth.
A number of famous stories are told of Ruth’s career from the debate around the Called Shot in the 1932 World Series to his sale to the Yankees from the Red Sox – many historians have studied documents concerning the career of Babe Ruth to preserve his legacy.
