Babe was also a pitcher... how many strikeouts does bonds have?
Thanks Echo. I was about to make that point.
Ruth was one of the very best left-handed pitchers in baseball at the time - when pitchers dominated the game. He still has one of the best winning percentages all time.
In my opinion, Ruth was the greatest all-around player in the games history. No one else has mastered the games two most important skills: hitting and pitching.
Note that Bonds was an excellent fielder in earlier years, as he often turned opponents doubles into singles.
