You might go ahead and toss in one or several more of the most famous of the pitching corps the unconquerable Leroy "Satchel" Paige, Don Newcombe, Bob Gibson and Mariano Riviera.
Dizzy Dean of the old Gashouse Gang fame takes the cake as a bodacious bragadocious hard chunking legend for saying it and also doing it as a winning pitcher.
Harken back to another of the great pitchers of the dead ball era and immediately immediate top and center is Christy Mathewson "The Christian Gentleman."
Would you agree these are some pitchers worthy of being called famous baseball players as pitchers?
Moving quickly to some famous baseball players brought to mind due to their general exploits of play making. Early years for our game of baseball the well known lyrical phrase "Tinker to Evers to Chance" forever etched upon the wall of time the twin killing combination of these three gents.
Tinker, Evers and Chance are the only players ever inducted into The Baseball Hall Of Fame as a unit all three together.
Willie Mays "The Say Hey Kid" roamed the center field and made his famous basket catch endearing him to all who ever saw or read of his exploits. This Hall Of Fame great from Fairfield, Alabama grew up playing center field for the Birmingham Black Barons roaming the garden turf in a Field Of Dreams of the Grand Dame of Ballparks historic Rickwood Field Birmingham, Alabama.
Could you name me a couple or so famous baseball players with the mastery of their swinging his bat or a pitcher throwing strikes which you would only hear the ball whistling as it pounded into the catcher mitt?
Cy Young 511 Wins, Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Lead "Murderers Row" Ted Williams Hits .406, Jackie Robinson is Rookie of the Year Willie Mays and "The Catch", "Dem Bums" World Series Champs 1955 Sandy Koufax's Perfect Game, Hank Aaron Hits 715, Ryan's 7th No-Hitter, Cal Ripken, Jr. 2,131 consecutive games, Ichiro Breaks Sisler's Record, Jeter Sets Breaks Yankees Hit Record, Cabrera Wins the Triple Crown all of these are wonderful stories in the history of our game,
There are many but to lead the parade here are some to ring your bell Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Mickey Mantle that is a seven card draw that wins most any hand be it stud poker or the crowds frantic cheers.
