So if you are given this brainstorming task of making a list of greatest baseball players, can you make a definite crowd pleasing list? I think not. Major League Baseball (MLB) is in existence since 1869 and there are thousands of players who played for various teams of MLB. Many say that Babe Ruth is actually the greatest baseball player. But his best innings came in 1927 and there is hardly anyone alive on this planet who watched his 1927 game Live. Then came Willie mays who was considered as the greatest baseball players by many baseball lovers. But again he played in a different era as compared to Babe Ruth.

In the long period of more than 147 years, the MLB witnessed many legends come and go. However making an all time great list is a tough task as there were different playing styles in different era. Also there were different perspectives of baseball, Many focused on the hitting style of a player. For that no doubt Babe ruth is the greatest. Many focused on the all-rounder performance from hitting to throwing to catching and in that way Willie mays have advantage over Babe Ruth. Other factors including the home and away games – Babe ruth played most of his games in the Yankee stadium in New York while Willie Mays played in several popular stadiums.

The other important point to keep in consideration is the opposite team players. Babe ruth played in the dead ball era while Willie mays faced some of the best pitchers ever stepped in the field. So who is actually the greatest baseball player of all time?
