| More Sports Board|| Is Tony Gwynn the greatest hitter of all-time? - cubsfan5150 on 6/17/14 at 7:15 am|
I think so.
He's the only guy in the top 20 batting averages of all time that played after 1960, when there's little doubt that pitchers didn't throw as hard and you saw far fewer pitchers during a given game/week.
The only comparable is Ted Williams, IMO, but if I had to have a guy put a bat ...

It's played on a football field.
You use a ball that is similar to a beach ball, but made of something different, yet still light enough to float for short distances.
It's 4 on 4 with reserves.
