Ask anyone what is America's favorite pastime and the answer will be baseball. And why not? After all who does not love to engage in a game of baseball while munching on peanuts and crackers? That is right! Baseball and America are inseparable. In fact, it has been the country's most preferred sport for a long time and for more reasons than one. The game of baseball is steeped in century's worth of tradition and history. And unlike many other sports, it is a lot more intricate too. With the balls and strikes, four bases, nine long innings, and a really complicated scoring system, the game might knock one off. But just a run down the fundamentals and its easy to get into the game. America has produced a wad of heavy hitters and extremely powerful pitchers in history. Thanks to their extraordinary RBIs, match-winning strikeouts, and king-sized personalities, these baseball players have gone ahead to become legends in their own rights. Read all about their lives, feats, timeline, trivia, and facts in the biographies below.
