Had a excellent, lengthy career! Could do EVERYTHING (hit, run, defense). Considered one of the good guys during his time, un like Cobb.

A great player, who legend has made something of a clown. Any cursory reading of the sportswriting of the time shows that he was a serious, very competent player, who may well have been the best ever at his position. Certainly no worse than third.

Ridiculous ranking here for Wagner, who should be # 2, and certainly belongs no lower than the top 5.

The greatest player of the deadball era. 95+% of Cobb's offense and he was a ShortStop. "It would take an imprudent man to spike Honus Wagner" Ty Cobb

Wagner batted at least .300 for 15 consecutive seasons and ended his career with 3,415 hits and a .327 batting average. He hit .333 with a .500 slugging percentage in the 1909 World Series, leading the Pirates to a seven game victory against Detroit.

One of the Hall of Famer's five original inductees in 1936, Honus Wagner combined rare offensive and defensive excellence throughout a 21-year career. Despite his awkward appearance - stocky, barrel, chested, and bow-legged - the longtime Pirates shortstop broke into the big league hitting .344 in 1897 with Louisville, the first of 17 consecutive seasons hitting over .300, including eight as the National League batting champion, compiling a lifetime average of .329. The Flying Dutchman also stole 722 bases and led the league in thefts on five occasions. Honus Wagner was inducted to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936.

Along with Mays, Cobb, Speaker, Dimaggio, and Charleston, one of the perfect players in history- could do it all. How many players have been BOTH the greatest offensive AND defensive players in all of baseball for an extended period of time? This was Honus Wagner.

Most people who know anything about baseball history consider Honus the best short stop ever. He was widely viewed as the best player in the 1890-1910-- until Cobb came into his pride. I just read Cobb's biography and even he called him the best hitter (other than himself).
