    Stan Musial is definitely worth a mention.
    Jimmie Foxx was good as well.

    Mt Rushmore of Praise & Worship artists:

    Jason Upton
    Hillsong United
    Chris Tomlin
    Kari Jobe

    The first two are non-negotiables for me but there could be other candidates for 3 and 4.

    I'd have to ask. I"m lousy with dates. He pitched for the Navy first then went into their system and was making waves when he kept having shoulder and elbow issues. Stiffness and soreness that was outside of his experience. Early onset arthritis and that was that. On the plus side, they weren't making Monopoly money then, and he was even better at business, as it turned out. But I remember watching him throw as a kid and how my brother would yip as catcher (with a really heavy glove) when we dared him to burn one in.

My brother has that gift too, though like my father he's better in business. Me? I may have been adopted. Well, no. Jack is going to have my size, unlike my brother, so if he gets any of rhe "Papa Ben" gene (and Jack's a lefty) I may get to spend my golden years behind home plate.

    They are all very good, but there is only one Arnold Palmer.
    So, what?

    Golfers...ranked by tour victories it would look like this:

    Jack
    Tiger
    Jones
    Hogan

    But I'd put Palmer in the fourth spot.

    Yes, there is a good reason he is called the "King."

    I think that Slammin' Sam Snead had more tour victories than anyone but yet I can only list him as Honorable Mention. Along with Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson. It is difficult to have to leave either of them out of the top four. After all, Nelson won something like eleven straight victories on the tour one year. That is one sport's record that will never be tied or broken and you can take that to the bank!

    Jack Nicklaus, top at the game, Palmer top in fame.

    Anyone think much of Patty Berg?
    So, what?

    I watched Jack Nicklaus when I was growing up and then later watched Tiger. I think that Tiger was the better golfer between the two.

    I really don't know much about women golfers but I saw a list which put Patty Berg as the 8th best player of all time.
