The Baseball Writers vote in the first 'class' of Baseball Hall of Famers. The class of five includes George Herman "Babe" Ruth, Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, Walter Johnson and Honus Wagner. Of the five, three, if you count Ruth's stellar pitching career with the Red Sox are pitchers [although pitching is NOT why Ruth goes into the Hall]. Wagner goes in as a great all around fielder, Cobb for his hitting [9 consecutive batting titles], Ruth for his slugging and hitting, Mathewson for his wins, and Johnson for his power pitching.

In the voting, Cobb finished first, Ruth and Wagner tied for second, and Mathewson and Johnson brought up the rear. Many others have followed them into the Hall, but they were the first to enter Cooperstown's Hallowed Hall.

And they use steroids today, which morphs them into something beyond mere humans.  Frankly, no one since about 1990 measures up to the players of the days when drugs were not part of the game.  People like Ruth and Mantle are still far superior than these pharmanoids of today!!!!!!!!!
