Postulate away but what is it based on? I will grant you that today’s pitching is better than Ruth’s time. But did Ruth have personal trainers, dieticians, private, hitting coaches, weight rooms , lower mound, physicians, film study and yes drugs that today’s players have? Ruth came from into the International league from an orphanage. He did not benefit from all the personal attention and instruction of today’s players. No one could touch him when he played and that is the definition of Greatest of All Time.
