And it's very difficult to argue too hard with their choices. Babe Ruth at is in my opinion a no-brainer. As with all books that rank the best of all time, the listing are subjective, although this list is very close to my personal choices. Sporting News is a respected name and that adds credibility to the book. Starting with Babe Ruth, as most baseball ranking do, right to number 100 Early Wynn, there are stories, photos and quotes that make this book one the best.

Original Title Nothing in depth, but this book features: 1. An introduction by Willie Mays; 2. Photos from the extensive files of The Sporting News; 3. A key stat box for each of the 100 selected

Our list boasts such sports heavyweights as The Sporting News, Gold's Gym, /Ironman, and Joe Weider. NTC/Contemporary is the one team that produces winners every season.

In 1999, The Sporting News assembled a list of the Baseball's 100 Greatest Players of the Twentieth Century. During a six-week voting process the list of players was pared down from a list that included every Hall of Fame member and other star and active players.

Through the early 20th century, baseball players used gloves only . Gehrig set one of the greatest records in baseball history, playing 2,130 consecutive games while establishing himself as maybe.

Through the early 20th century, baseball players used gloves only slightly larger than their hands. Doak, who pitched 16 seasons in the majors between 1912 and 1929, helped create the modern glove. Gehrig set one of the greatest records in baseball history, playing 2,130 consecutive games while establishing himself as maybe the top first baseman of all-time.

The urge to compete and its expression in sport goes as far back as Ancient Greece and beyond, but the 20th century marked the beginning of a new sporting golden age. Many long standing sports achieved fresh levels of excellence and entertainment. Now among the most famous people of their age these outstanding athletes took on new responsibilities.

The Apotheoses of Lacspor
I love any book with Babe Ruth on the cover. This book had great info in a capsulized format for each of the players. Short enough for a quick read on any of the players, and keeps younger reader's attention.

Engaging collection of 100 players deemed by 12 TSN editors. Unfortunately it was written/published in 1998, perhaps in hopes of having a two-year shelf life. Sadly, it is unaware of the 1998 homerun chase though it appears Mark McGwire's stats consider 1998, but no other players for 1998 are noted.

So, there is no A-Rod, no I-Rod, no Frank Thomas with his MVPs, no Carlton Fisk, and no Sammy Sosa. Each player gets one large photo, usually an 8 X 10 and two smaller photos. On the large photo is an informative quote about them. Each player gets a little chart that compares them to other players numerically.

There is a written short bio of each player that tells a little about them, their play, stance, physical appearance and or sound of their voice. Reading them makes a person want to see some footage of them playing in a game.

Some of the choices of where the players have been chosen can be debated. On pages 60 - 61 a bar graph is shown of when each player played, helpful. Pages 164 - 165 feature All Decade teams for 1900's to 1990's, some players appear in two decades which shows their impact on the game.

It concludes with a breakdown of players by position (37 outfielders) Birthplaces- 30 states and at least 4 other countries, and their primary teams: 24 different franchises, Yankees with 13 players. Concludes with a quize and a roll call of vital stats. Handy. Makes a great gift.
The Sphinx of Driz
Like their pro football book, this book selects what The Sporting News' editors felt who were the greatest 100 baseball players of all time. And it's very difficult to argue too hard with their choices. Babe Ruth at #1 is in my opinion a no-brainer. Ruth really saved the game at a time when it desperately needed a hero and he forever changed the way the game was played with his towering home runs on the field and his "carousing" off it. The book also features a nicely written foreword by the #2 all-time best player, Willie Mays. How honored I am that I got to see him play in his prime some 30 plus years ago as a boy.
I like that the choices in this book are unaffected by race, scandal or personality. Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige, Buck Leonard, Cool Papa Bell, and Oscar Charleston of the Negro League made this list. It's truly sad that so many talented ballplayers were kept out of the majors because of their race. Joe Jackson, is another "Top 100 member" who of course was banned after the Black Sox scandal. Others like Ty Cobb, who was a notorious hothead in his day are also here.
Reading through the book brought many smiles to my face as I recalled watching so many players, like Harmon Killebrew, Kirby Puckett, Willie McCovey (my all-time favorite), Ernie Banks, and Hank Aaaron just to name a few.
So many excellent choices, this book is well-done and a great momento to all the athletes who have made baseball the game it is today.

My favorite sports is baseball, so reviewing this book was an easy choice. As with all books that rank the best of all time, the listing are subjective, although this list is very close to my personal choices. Sporting News is a respected name and that adds credibility to the book.
Starting with Babe Ruth, as most baseball ranking do, right to number 100 Early Wynn, there are stories, photos and quotes that make this book one the best. I was impressed by the vast collection of pictures throughout the book.
The book has a top 100 timeline of players, the All Time top 10 selections lists, all decade teams, top100 breakdowns and a top 100 quiz included in the book as well. For every baseball fan and purest, this would make the prefect gift or collectors item.
A great addition to my library, a book that I will share with my children for years to come, Baseball's 100 Greatest Players needs only to add a video to make the set complete!

This was a very interesting baseball book. I love baseball and everything about it, so when I heard about this book, I really wanted it. I agree with Ruth and Mays as the top two. I also agree with basically everything else, except for three players: Barry Bonds should not be 34. I think he should be about #40. Carl Yastrzemski should be much higher than #72 or whatever he is. He had 450+ homers and 3000+ hits. He should be in the top 25. Eddie Murray should be higher, too. He has an MVP, and is one of only 3 players with both 500 homers and 3000 hits. But this is part of what makes this book fun: You can debate on the selections. The photos, quotes, and bios are wonderful. This is one of my favorite books.

As national sports publications go, The Sporting News tends towards the low-brow; this can be charted both with the increase in recent years of NASCAR-coverage and by the quality of the copy itself--certainly not in the same class as Sports Illustrated, which, for all its faults, boasts the cream of the crop in terms of sheer sports journalism.

Thankfully, the book is not marred too noticeably by the usual TSN writing style; namely terse, fumbling little capsules that adhere strictly to certain familiar narrative arcs. The same cannot be said for the opinions therein, which are often almost painfully wrong-minded or dependent on faulty logic. It becomes clear that this volume was meant more as a stately coffee table book than a Bill James-style journey into the jungle of stats and lore to determine the pecking order of the great game.

I am a maniacal fan, to put it kindly, and one that must analyze history for its own sake. This book is intended for a fan of a slightly lesser level of obsession, which is not to say that it cannot be recommended heartily for most.

This is the greatest book that I have ever read about baseball's greatest players-and I've read a lot. It has a page on each player with a full-page picture. It is filled with information and has players ranked in order. The only things that I didn't like was how Ty Cobb was number 3, not first and Dizzy Dean was all the way back at number 85. Buy this book, it's worth the money!
