In reality, after serious thought, I think the greatest baseball player comes up in a tie...Babe Ruth and Willie Mays..Greatest athlete of all time? easy..Wilt Chamberlin..NBA, world class volleyball player, ran the 1/4 mile in under 60 seconds, shot put, 7 foot high jumper, and could run all day..Mizzou
By far the Greatest athlete was Wayne Gretzky.No one had a head like this guy and he could see the play 3 steps before it happened,on top of that he was the most unselfish player ever to play the game,and to think he was only 5' 11' and weighted in at 165 lbs.Sorry I know you asked about Baseball,my apology.
YES, I agree that's the best play ever!!! Bar none. The Best player of any sports ever played around the globe??? Might have to outside the box on that one and say "Pele" the soccer player. Justed popped in my head. He could jump in the air upside down and kick the ball though players and past the goalie. I don't think I will ever see a any player with as many talents as he had, period. Can't remember his last name. Anyone remember out there. Break-em all. Jeff
