Best Answer

Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron or Jackie Robinson in the past

Present A-Rod, Albert pujols or Tim lincecum. I would also think that Mickey Mantle was really famous too. To me he is my hero and my dad's

Every decade has had its famous superstars. Most of us have our favourites from the 60's onward, but for the preceding decades may I offer :

1890's Cy Young

1900's Christy Matthewson, Honus Wagner

1910's Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson

1920's Babe Ruth, George Sisler

1930's Lou Gehrig, Joe Di Maggio

1940's Ted Williams, Stan Musial

1950's Willie Mays, Warren Spahn, Mickey Mantle

Babe Ruth, I live in England and I'm not in the slightest bit interested in baseball but I've heard of him.

You are spot on concerning the international awareness of the Great Bambino. Babe Ruth was not only one of the game's greatest sluggers, he was also an accomplished pitcher with the Boston Red Sox, the team that ultimately traded him to the New York Yankees c. 1920. I don't believe there is another player in the history of Major League Baseball who reached "all star " status as both a fielder and a pitcher.

Depends what you mean by "famous." In the 1880's, Mike "King" Kelly was as famous as any subsequent Baseball star: he inspited a song ("Slide, Kelly, Slide") that was a huge hit, he was the first to publish an auto-biography (ghost-written), and he was the first to sign Autographs. The purchase of his contract in 1886 for $10,000 was considered shocking at a time when some teachers were paid $72 A YEAR in wages.
