Baseball Lists / Legendary Lists

Humorous lists, instructional lists, rank-oriented lists, and quite a few other memorable baseball lists are in Baseball Almanac's Legendary Lists section. Ted Williams took time to rank the batters he believed were the twenty best, while Satchel Paige gave fans tips on how to stay young. These two, and several other legendary lists, have been told and retold throughout the years and below you'll discover some of the more memorable lists in baseball history.

"Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you." - Satchel Paige (From his legendary list on How To Keep Young )

Legendary Lists


Do you remember which Major League baseball player received the most votes during the recent All Century Team elections?

The Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), of which Baseball Almanac is a member, has written several great lists which appear on this page.

Ted Williams gave hitting advice and ranked the twenty best hitters ever, but did you know that Ty Cobb actually discussed some batting tips with a fellow player?
