Mike Piazza. I only saw my first game maybe nine years ago. But of what I've seen and have heard Mike Piazza is the greatest offensive catcher in the history of the game.

When he was hot he was hot. But being a Met fan and watchin his dead ass arm day in and day out he gets bumped in favor of Johnny Bench and my personal fav. Yoggi.

Although he has the stats to back up the most productive of offensive players of all time. Its been a while since he hit 350. or 300 even.

mantle! ? May 30th, 1956: Mickey Mantle hits one of the most memorable HRs in his career, in the 2nd game of a doubleheader with the Washington Senators. He tags a pitch from Pedro Ramos that comes within 18 inches of leaving Yankee Stadium, something never accomplished by any major leaguer. The ball was still climbing when it caromed off the upper-stand facade, about 396 feet from home plate. Estimates are that the ball could have traveled more than 600 feet. It is Mantle's 20th HR of the season; (no one else has ever hit 20 HRs before June.)

Notre Dame graduate Hannan's 254 strikeouts (in only 196 innings) in his first pro season led the New York-Penn League in 1961, but he was always plagued by control problems. Taken from the Red Sox organization by the Senators in the second expansion draft, his best year was 1968, when he went 10-6 for the 65-96 Washington team. The lifetime .091 hitter struck out in 13 consecutive at-bats in 1968, an AL record. Hannan was a player representative, and his master's thesis on the Major League pension plan was used by Marvin Miller to acquaint himself with baseball's benefit system. Hannan became a stockbroker in the Washington area. (CG)

FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY

? July 8, 1966: In New York, the Senators win the opener, 7?6, then blow a 4-run lead in the nitecap to lose, 7?5. Mickey Mantle is 5-for-8 in DH, including a homer in each game. The 2nd homer, off Jim Hannan, is a 461 foot sky shot over the monuments into the CF bleachers. Mick follows with a sure double in the 5th but tears a hamstring muscle rounding first and will be sidelined for two weeks.
? May 2, 1967: Washington and Kansas City split a pair, each by 10 scores. Pete Richert is the winner for Washington in the opener, beat Lew Krausse. Catfish Hunter returns the compliment, topping Jim Hannan in game 2.

? August 13, 1968: Pitching seven 2/3 innings, Tom Hall gains his first ML win as the Twins beat the Senators, 8?4. Washington's Jim Hannan (7-3) takes the loss and doesn't help himself at bat, striking out for the 13th straight time since July 24.

? September 19, 1970: Boston's Billy Conigliaro connects for a 4th inning home run off Washington's Jim Hannan, and in the 7th frame, brother Tony Conigliaro wallops a solo shot off Joe Grzenda. The Red Sox win 11?3 after taking the first game, 7?3. The brothers also homered in the same game on July 4. Billy will end the year with 18 home runs, while Tony will connect for 36. Frank Howard is frustrated with five strikeouts in game 1.

He was no doubt a great baseball player. The guy could hit a rope in his sleep. Played pretty good defense and played hard. 4000 hits is a lot. I liked watching Tony Gwinn hit better than rose actually. But it seems the power guys make the list. Although ichiro is something special to watch. Balance and poetry with that swing.

I would put up Ted williams but I never saw him play. Only clips and he was somethin to see. I did see mantle but he retired when i turned 11. I saw willy in the 73 World series and it was like watchin Louis against Marciano. He had nothin left. Clemente was fluid and graceful. Great to watch but IMO overrated. His stats just dont stack up. He hit 30 hrs only once cause he said he was gonna, but dipped his average below 270. He only hit 300 a few times in his career.

Fisk belongs right up there with the best. Yogi, Fisk, Bench, Piazza, Jerry Grote. Pudge.

Kirby Puckett gets a mention as a great ballplayer as well.
I forgot poor old Kirby.
