Ty Cobb, nicknamed “The Georgia Peach” was an exceptional five-tool baseball player. Cobb’s illustrious career spanned from 1905-1928, primarily as the Centerfielder for the Detroit Tigers. Cobb’s career achievements include: American League MVP in 1911, Triple Crown Winner in 1909, 12x American League batting champion, 4x American League RBI leader, and 6x American League stolen base leader. Honus Wagner, deemed “the nearest thing to a perfect player” hit .300-or-better for 15 straight seasons from 1899-1913. In that span, Wagner won eight National League batting titles, led the NL in doubles seven times, stolen bases five times and RBI four times. He paced the league in slugging percentage six times and on-base percentage four times. In his 21 seasons, Wagner totaled 3,420 hits, 643 doubles, 1,739 runs, 1,732 RBI and 723 stolen bases to go with a .328 batting average. Christy Mathewson was the first great pitching star of the modern era, and is still the standard by which greatness is measured. He set a modern era record for wins by an NL pitcher with 37 in 1908, a year when he completed 34 of his 44 starts en route to more than 390 innings pitched. From 1903-14, Mathewson never won fewer than 22 games in a season and led the NL in ERA five times.
