Playing during the "Dead Ball" era, Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Fame shortstop Honus Wagner racked up 996 extra base hits, a .467 slugging average, 1,732 RBI, and many other big numbers. The mind boggles when trying to imagine what kind of power numbers this baseball titan would have put up, had he played a generation later, when the likes of "Babe" Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, and Rogers Hornsby were blasting baseballs all over the place.
