Overview

Ty Cobb, Nap Lajoie, and Honus Wagner were among the greatest hitters who ever played major league baseball, but how do they stack up against players of other eras and each other? This book employs a statistical analysis of “production per at-bat” to compare 120 top batters by position over a 19-year period when contact, speed and hit-and-run strategy were more valuable than power and home runs.
Included are an analysis of each player’s strengths and weaknesses, rankings of the most talented and the most valuable producers, and the selection of an All-Star team for the era.
