Babe Ruth is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player who ever lived, in part because he was an elite pitcher and a great hitter; he revolutionized the game of baseball with his power-hitting ways in 1920. He played for the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, and Boston Braves from 1914-1935.

Satchel Paige was one of the best and most popular pitchers in the Negro Leagues from 1924-1947. That last year was when blacks were finally allowed to play in the Major Leagues in the person of Jackie Robinson.

Willie Mays is usually right up there on the list of greatest baseball players of all time as well.

He played for the New York/San Francisco Giants and New York Mets from 1951-1973.

Barry Bonds, the godson of Mays and the son of Bobby Bonds, has spent the early part of the 21st century demolishing many hitting records, including home runs in a season, slugging percentage, and on-base percentage, three of the most important offensive categories.

Shortly after the launch of the Enterprise-B in Star Trek Generations, he met Ensign Matt Franklin in a pub, and was convinced by him to ride on his ship, the Jenolen, established in ST: Engines of Destiny by Gene DeWeese. The Jenolen crashed into a Dyson Sphere, with Scott and Franklin as the only survivors. Scott was able to "freeze" the two of them as a looping transporter pattern until they were rescued; however, by the time they were rescued by the Enterprise-D in "Relics" (TNG) seventy-five years later, Franklin's pattern had degraded.
