With the first overall pick, the Brooklyn Superbas select OF Babe Ruth.



Although there are a multitude of great ball players to choose from, there really is no other option for the first overall pick. Choosing anyone else in this spot would be akin to picking Jessie Spano over Kelly Kapowski.

Ruth's career can be summed up in one word: "Ruthian".

Career Stats (with career ranking):
.342 AVG (10th)
.474 OBP (2nd)
.690 SLG% (1st)
1.164 OPS (1st)
206 OPS+ (1st)
714 non-steroid homeruns (3rd)
2,213 RBI (2nd)
123 SB
4,842 hamburgers consumed (1st)
178.3 Career War (1st)

He was so dominating in his era, that in 1920 he hit 11% of all home runs in the MLB and was widely regarded as the best fantasy baseball keeper of his time.
