Real 100 Best Baseball Players of All Time...and Why!by Ken Shoulder, Ken Shouler, Kenneth A. Shouler
Who is the best baseball player of all-time? Why everyone knows it was Babe Ruth, he built Yankee Stadium and only rescued the game after the infamous 1919 Black Sox Scandal. Or was it Ted Williams? He was the last batter to hit .400 in a season and wrote books on the art of hitting. What about Willie Mays or Ty Cobb. Or even Pete Rose the all-time hits leader?
Think the argument is moot? Well author Ken Shouler doesn't. In his book The Real 100 Best Baseball Players of All-Time... and Why! all of the above players are considered, but only one can be considered as the best. Statistics are the groundwork. The criteria is accomplishments not lifestyle and this isn't some tepid alphabetical list either.
Williams or DiMaggio, Ruth or Aaron, Mays or Mantle, the argument of who was better has gone on for generations. Shouler makes his case that one player is better than another and why. Each of the top 100 players are ranked and evaluated by looking not only at their numbers but at their impact on the game as well.
The Real 100 Best Baseball Players of All-Time ... and Why! is a combination of facts, quotes and anecdotes, with complete statistics on all the top 100 players as well as black and white photos throughout.
You may be surprised at who is at the top, who is on the list and who got left off, but if you do disagree we'll welcome your argument, but be prepared, the burden of proof falls on your shoulders.
