Babe Ruth doesn't count because he didn't play against black guys, had sex and drank beer?
It certainly doesn't make a strong case for him...

Plus it's baseball...certainly requires skill (one player at a time) but has anyone... ever... ran out of breath playing this sport?

How about all the great Curlers and Bowlers? No offence but are we talking about the most dominant athlete of all time?
