If we are simply talking in terms of hitting prowess, then I would have to say Hornsby with Foxx a very close second. My top 5 would be

Hornsby
Foxx
Mays
Wagner
Dimaggio

Funny thing is that I confused myself, somewhere between saying best "hitter" ever and posting my list I started thinking about overall offensive players (which is the list I posted). Hornsby would drop to #3 on my list in pure hitters and Foxx would be #1. I'll try this again three ways.

Best pure hitter

Foxx
Mays
Hornsby
Wagner
Dimaggio

Best Offensive Player

Hornsby
Foxx
Mays
Wagner
Dimaggio

Best Overall Player

Wagner
Mays
Dimaggio
Hornsby
Foxx

wow how can you guys go against hornsby

the only player EVER righty or lefty to hit 400 in a season and 40 homeruns in a season... (almost did it twice, another season hit 400 and 39 longs balls)

holds the modern era record for batting average in a season (424)


and to top it off he was a second baseman

argue against him as being the greatest right handed offensive player...

If we are talking about just hitting I could see the arguement for Foxx over Hornsby but he is the only one IMO.

Hornsby played when batting averages were going crazy, unlike any period since 1900. between 1920-1930 eight players hit above 400. Since 1930, one player has hit above 400.

Im going to have to say Foxx (peak) or Aaron (career).

As a hitter there is definitely an argument.

The ten year average for the players which was pretty much the entirety of Hornsby productive career.

Foxx - .342 BA / .447 OBP / .657 SLG / 1.104 OPS / 42 HR / 105 BB / 140 RBI
Hornsby - .382 BA / .457 OBP / .637 SLG / 1.094 OPS / 25 HR / 75 BB / 115 RBI

As far as the entire career numbers go, while Hornsby holds a 30 point lead over Foxx in BA, their OBP is only 3 points in Hornsby's favor and Foxx owns a 20 point SLG advantage.
