The Era breakdown for the our Best First Basemen List is not spread out as evenly as some of the other position lists.
As we examine the numbers shown above, 75% of the top 12 hitting 1st Basemen come from Eras 2 (Babe Ruth Era), 7 (Steroid Era) and 8 (Baseball After Steroids). In Era 2 (Babe Ruth Era), we see players with high batting averages beginning to hit home runs while maintaining their high averages. While examining Era 7 (Steroid Era) and Era 8 (Baseball After Steroids) – even with our new statistic The Home Run Curve – these two eras account for 6 of the 12 best hitting First Baseman of all time.
