Isn't that "the face of baseball?"

Do you think he holds his bat as lightly as Bobby Abreu, "like a pianist?"
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

No, he weilds the bat with mighty, rippling, sinewey, muscley arms. Much like a gorilla warrior. He's known for his magical powers.

Jordan would have gotten my vote. As a Knicks fan (not much of one because I dislike basketball) I saw Jordan get it done too many times to count.

Not just that, but also the way he runs out to SS from the dugout every inning.

I think in order of fist pumpingness, clearly the measure upon which we measure all clutch performers, I say we have to go with Jordan for almost leveling Ehlo, then Tiger for his exaggerated fist pump, and Jeter 3rd for fist pumping when he cheers on his teammates from the dugout. Seriously though, when it comes to the "rips your heart out" factor, it's Jordan. By a lot.
