Who do you think is the greatest of all time?
I know a lot of fans go for Ruth or Williams.
I always say Mays because of his fielding and running ability coupled with his hitting.
What are your thoughts?

Marquis Rowe. MLB 06 The Show. My top draft pick last season, hit 81 homeruns this season.
I would go with Williams, if he hadn't gone to the war he would have many of the records

Babe Ruth won over 100 games as a pitcher. He out homered teams. He revolutionized the game. Even stole a significant number of bases and had a great arm in the outfield. His numbers are mindboogling.

The only number he doesn't have is 3000 hits. Which sort of makes his home run total all the more impressive.
I can't really argue against Ruth or Williams.

Come on, Babe Ruth. Most dominant player of any professional sport.
Teddie Ballgame and any others mentioned here were great, but none dominated like the Babe. Not EVEN close.
