The 10 Greatest Baseball Players (plus others…) – clip

Vincent Cannato / Boston University

Another baseball season is upon us! What better way to celebrate than a discussion of the greatest baseball players of all time? Any such list of “greatest players” is entirely subjective – and this one is no different – but this lecture will provide a historical context needed for any discussion of how to measure and evaluate players over time. We will also discuss various statistical measurements used to evaluate players, comparisons of different eras of baseball history, and other factors that go into evaluating and comparing players over time.
