Call this a labor of love. Call it an honor, a challenge, an opportunity for closure. Call it appropriate for The Sporting News, the publication that has been a watchdog and chronicle for baseball since 1876, to select the 100 greatest players of the 20th century. The names roll off the tongue like a split-finger baseball. Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Johnny Bench, Greg Maddux, George Brett, Mickey Mantle. Not only have TSN's editors determined the cream of baseball's crop over a 100-year period, they have dared to rank the players according to the talent and passion they brought to the field and the emotion and excitement they stirred among generations of fans. All of the Top 100 made a lasting imprint on a game that celebrates its heroes like no other.
