Brett is one of the five greatest third baseman in the history of the game. Ryan threw seven no-hitters and holds the single-season and career strikeout marks. Yount was a two-time AL MVP who finished with 3,142 hits. Williams, who rivaled Satchel Paige for the title of greatest pitcher in Negro League history, may have been better than all of them.
