Babe, Roger & Jim, Papa, Buck and Bo.

Incredible photo of Babe Ruth in 1921. This photo has “bad-ass” written all over it.

 

2 of My favorite players to wear the New York Yankees pinstripes: Roger Maris and Jim Bouton.

 

Cool Papa Bell sliding into third base in 1932 as a member of the Homestead Grays. Bell is usually included in discussions regarding the fastest players in baseball history. Bell retired with a lifetime batting average of .337 during 28 seasons in the Negro Leagues and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974.

 

Buck O’Neil is Baseball.

 

In 1986 Bo Jackson played 53 games with the Memphis Chicks, the AA affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. He was called up to the big leagues later in the season and made his Major League debut on September 2nd, 1986 going 1 for 3 against future Hall of Famer Steve Carlton of the Chicago White Sox.
