You can debate the best in basketball, boxing, hockey, soccer, race car driving, football, swimming, horses etc, etc.

There is no debate in baseball. And given today's high bounce ball, much loosened foul ball rules, lower mound and so on he would've crushed his own statistics.

He is the best because he'd been among the best as a pitcher too. Today he wouldn't see the ball much, but those few he'd hit would probably travel all the way to Hawaii or Portugal, depending from the Coast. At the same time, any of our best sluggers couldn't pick up the 8-ton bats they used then, or even walking around in those killer woolen and flannel uniforms.

Honestly, Willie Mays was an unparalleled fielder and all-around player, an area Babe can't claim. Combine that with his 660 home runs (5th all-time) and 1903 RBI (12th), and Mays has to be at least in the conversation for being the better ballplayer. IMO, Mays is #1. If we're talking about impact on baseball, no question it's the Babe, as he remade the sport in his image and lent it popularity.

Not to dismiss his achievements, but he played in a different era, without blacks and latinos and without all of the technological advancements of today (some of them would actually benefit him, though).

Barry Bonds' career has a stain because of PEDs, but I still consider him the greatest to ever play. Now we have Mike Trout, putting 9+ WAR seasons year after year. If he keeps this pace, he'll retire as the GOAT.

This will always be a subjective discussion, but for me, the only undebatable on the four major leagues is Wayne Gretzky on the NHL.

Also, check out my Top 10 players of all-time quizzes, I made one for each of the 30 teams.

Ruth has held legendary status in MLB for so long, he's immune to comparison. The conversation will always start with him. (though I agree with dubscurry30 that Mays, arguably, was the best ever)

Agree 100% with MBatistussi. You can argue every other sport except hockey. There's Gretzky, and then there's everyone else. Watching him vs the Soviets (1987 Canada Cup?) was jaw-dropping. He was already the best in the NHL by a mile. But that showed he was the best in the world. Nobody on the planet was on his level.

I'd be interested to see how the increased velocity of the average fastball would affect him. Also, would he be athletic enough to be a position player or would he have to be a DH in the A.L.?

If he came up through the system like today's players do, I feel confident that his natural hand-eye coordination would allow him to excel. Likewise, with the workouts and training that modern players get I feel like he would be athletic enough to at least have a shot in the field to let his bat play (if in the National League)

Apparently he was a great fielder as well. Most of the video we have of Ruth is from late in his career, but he was definitely a good all-around athlete.

I think he would handle today's pitching just fine, but there's no question his batting average would be lower than his ridiculous .343 career total.

On the other hand, he used a very heavy bat. Using a lighter bat could help to compensate for the faster pitches.

My person opinion is that we transported an 18 year old Babe Ruth into 2022, he would quickly become the best player in baseball.

Thank you, the rest of the teams can be found in the series "Top 20 by MLB team". I plan to do wins also, as well as hits, RBIs, and other statistical categories.

Hard to remember that Reggie Jackson really wasn't with the Yankees that long.
