Re: Best Player to Ever Play the Game
This was discussed about a year ago. For me, while umping games in the Men’s Professional Slow Pitch League in the late 70s, Ronnie Ford playing for the Detroit Caesars team was the best all around player I saw. He could hit and field. The bats and balls weren’t like they are today. In addition, he was a true gentleman on and off the field. Over the 51 years that I have umped, I have seen many great players. It is difficult to pick just one. Each decade has one or two that standout.
