The Top 5 Greatest Pitchers of All Time are pitchers who actually pitched! They pitched all nine innings, never complained and the very idea of someone coming in to “relieve” them was absurd. These are guys who would make today’s greatest pitchers look like little leaguers. Unlike today’s spoiled brat pitchers, the pitchers on this list would have pitched every other day instead of every three to five days. These are pitchers who faced the greatest batters in the game and when tested, weren’t afraid to take one of their heads off with a brushback pitch coming at them like a heat-seeking missile. All of the pitchers on this list have hall of fame credentials like no other. These were real men pitching before steroids and performance enhancing drugs were all the rage. All they had was beer and liquor. And even though some pitched at a time when electricity and transportation without horses was new technology, many of their records have yet to be broken. Putting this list together was no easy task. Many of you will want to know why more modern day players were left off the list. If you can match their numbers against these guys then by all means go for it.
5.) Bob Gibson (1959-1975), Right Hander
251-174 Record, 2.91 ERA, 3,117 Strikeouts
You want to tell Gibson that he’s not one of the Top 5 pitchers of all time? I dare you.
Even at his age you’ll probably get fastball aimed right at your head. Gibson was the first Black major league pitcher to throw a no-hitter.
4.) Sandy Koufax (1955-1966), Left Hander
165-87 Record, 2.76 ERA, 2,396 Strikeouts
Koufax only played for 10 seasons, but had an incredible impact on the Dodgers and Major League Baseball.
From 1961-1966 Koufax was nearly untouchable. Was forced to retire at age 30 because of arthritis in his left elbow. Koufax is at the top of the top 10 Jewish Athletes of all time.
Besides his outstanding numbers and being one of the best left-handers in history, Plank helped lead the Philadelphia A’s to not one, but two World Series titles.
He had an ERA under three in 15 out of his 17 seasons in the majors. There should be a statute of him in the city instead of that freaking Rocky.
Steve Carlton (1965-1988), Left Hander
329-244 Record, 3.22 ERA, 4,136 Strikeouts
Carlton was nicknamed “Lefty” because he threw left-handed. Wonder what they would have called him if he threw with both hands?
He may be one of the most underrated greatest pitchers of all time mainly because he hated talking to the media. One thing hardly anyone knows about Carlton – he picked off 144 batters for the most of all time. Second is Jerry Koosman with 82.
