Ever since the game of baseball was invented by New Yorker Abner Doubleday in 1839, the sport has been played by many and watched by millions more. It is a bat-and-ball game which is played between two opposing teams (consisting of catchers, infielders, outfielders, pitchers etc) who take turns batting and fielding.
In every sport, there are athletes who stand out not only because of their love of the game, but also because of their abilities. These gifted players have not only made a name for themselves, but many of them have played crucial roles in securing the win for their teams.
Some of the greatest stars include Babe Ruth, Barry Bonds, Ty Cobb, Lou Gehrig, Cy Young, Joe DiMaggio, Mike Schmidt and Jackie Robinson, all of whom have been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, been named All-Stars, won World Series Championships and been named Most Valuable Player.
