    I wonder if you choosing Brett and no Schmidt will cause any kind of debate. 🤔

    Oh no. I went and did it. I have rekindled the debate!!! for some weird reason, I thought Penn. had a little bit of coastline. should have checked the map.

    would Gibby be the best pitcher on this list?

    What’s interesting is if you went straight North from Atlantic City, which borders the Atlantic Ocean, you would be in Pennsylvania.

    wait, I wasnt thinking back far enough. For a player it would have to be Honus Wagner, right? A SS putting up monster numbers.

    Bob Feller, arguably the best right handed pitcher in MLB history.

    excellent point. I forgot about Feller. I would still consider Gibby the better pitcher. He had better advanced metrics better era+, whip, better 5 year peak.

    I would think that the GOAT right-handed pitcher would be either W. Johnson or Clemens.

    Harmon only really played two years in Washington majority of his time was in Minnesota, but he prolly doesn't qualify.

    Puckett and Olivia played their entire careers here.

    Might have to go with Stan "The Man"!

    I go with Stan Musial for best player and Walter Johnson and Bob Gibson for pitching.

    Does Washington DC border the Atlantic? Don’t believe it does. There are inlets though ???

  • HidhoeHidhoe Posts: 310 ✭✭✭

    Does anyone consider this close ?
    Look at those All Star appearances.

    a lot of those all star appearances are because during some seasons there were actually 2 all star games. Willie, Mickey, Aaron also have inflated totals.

    George Brett, Roger Clemens and Tommy Brady.

    1959-62 had 2 A.S. games. Stan still leads Mike 20-12. Very impressive!!

  • coinkatcoinkat Posts: 22,761 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Washington DC borders the Potomac... So an argument can be made the Pitcher could be Walter Johnson. Plenty of other greats have already been mentioned

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Ty Cobb!

    For me, it would be between Cobb, Wagner and Musial.

    For pitchers, either Walter Johnson or Bob Gibson.
