Baseball’s Greatest Hitters’ Retired Top 150 Baseball Players list reveals specific patterns by Era

When we view the era breakdown of our Retired Top 150 Baseball Players / Hitters of All Time list, the statistical formula used on this website shows some definitive patterns. During this time frame, we see great players are represented in all eras, as the pattern follows baseball history. The numbers are slightly higher from Era 2 (Babe Ruth Era) when players with high averages also started hitting home runs. There is a high representation of players from Era 7 (Steroid Era). Even with the Homerun Curve being used as part of the formula for rating baseball players, this era is represented well. Also we see no surprises in Eras 5 (Pitching Era) and 6 (Last Clean Era) because during this dime pitching was dominant.

When we view the position breakdown of the Retired Top 150 Baseball Players from 1901 to the present, there are no surprises here to the hitting patterns of the players. The Outfielders as well as the First Baseman dominate the list while Catchers, Second Basemen, Short Stops and Third Basemen are spread quite evenly.
