And dont give me any crap like "because they steroids were not invented yet"

Little suspicious how dude retired with almost 200+ homers more than the next closest players of his time period (Jimmie Foxx, Mel Ott, Lou Gherig). Alsopitching in 17 games (12 of them complete) the same season he drives in 114 runs

Maybe that's why he was ragarded as the best hitter? He was so good, it was unbelievable

Good question. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised one day if they found out that some ballplayers from back in the day used some sort of enhancements whethera using a steroid or doing some other illegal stuff like tipping pitches. Time will tell.

Because if he had access to something, wouldn't someone else would have hit similar numbers too? I can't imagine some secret ingredient being solelyavailable to him. Just another attempt to bring the white man down.

TS brings up a good point imo.

You guys REALLY think baseball players weren't doing SOMETHING to get an edge back in the days??

People act like cheating was invented at the same time as steroids.....
