    RZ Greatest OF Tourney

    Inspired by a rank 'em on espn.

    Post in this thread if you think of any other outfielders that deserve to be in the tournament. I'll put together either a 16 or 32 man bracket depending on how many other names get added to this list. Should be interesting.

    Babe Ruth
    Ty Cobb
    Joe DiMaggio
    Roberto Clemente
    Frank Robinson
    Ted Williams
    Mel Ott
    Willie Mays
    Mickey Mantle
    Ken Griffey Jr.
    Hank Aaron
    Barry Bonds
    Tris Speaker
    Stan Musial
    Rickey Henderson
    Manny Ramirez

    Re: RZ Greatest OF Tourney

    I wonder if there should be a new age division and an old timers division?

    What about Man Ram?

    IMO he's done enough to be included, I'll add him.

    I nominate Reggie Jackson, even though I won't vote for him.

    I think I'll just go ahead and create the bracket from the 16 already listed, Postseason performance and he'd definitely be on there.

    I'll get the 1st round matchups put together for voting either tomorrow or early next week.
