I would have loved to have seen Ruth face Paige personally.

Do I have to pick just one? There are so many ways to go with this.

Paige vs. Cobb
Ruth pitching vs. Gehrig
Koufax vs. Ted Williams

Of course not only one, I was just wondering what everyone would say was their absolute top matchup.

I'd also love to see Maddux and Ted Williams go at it. Perhaps baseball's greatest minds at battle.

Babe Ruth vs. Pedro Martinez.

The greatest peak of a pitcher vs. the greatest hitter of all time. Power vs. Power.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.
