This is a comparison of statistics for some of the best seasons and careers of players from Major League Baseball; using data collected on batting average, at bat to homerun ratio, and earned run average. Two teams were created, composed of season leaders and career leaders, chosen for their outstanding offensive and pitching abilities, and were pitted against one another to determine superiority. These two teams also compared against a team from each era of major league baseball. The season and career leaders challenged, the 1918 Boston Red Sox, 1927 New York Yankees, 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers, 1961 New York Yankees, 1985 Kansas City Royals, and the 2005 Chicago White Sox. All of these teams were champions of baseball during their seasons.
