Default Favorite Baseball Players - Different Periods

Who were your favorite baseball players from:


1900 to 1940.


1941 to 1980


1981 to now.


My favorite players in the first era (I could list many) would be:


1. Ty Cobb
2. Babe Ruth
3. Shoeless Joe Jackson


Favorite Players in the 2nd time period would be:


1. Joe DiMaggio
2. Bob Feller
3. Mickey Mantle


Favorite Players in the 3rd time period would be:


1. Derek Jeter
2. Ken Griffey, Jr
3. Nolan Ryan


I would also like to add that there were a bunch of great baseball players in the old Negro Leagues that never got the press or headlines of the white leagues during their day. I am sure that they would have easily made this list. That might be a good post to start one day about all the great stars that played in that league during it's heyday.
