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?
