Best baseball player: Bryce Harper
Debate Rounds (1)
There are many baseball players who deserve credit for being the *best* more than Bryce Harper does. Think about legends like Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Lou Gehrig, Derek Jeter, Joe DiMaggio, etc. These players have achieved legendary status in the game, while Bryce Harper is just up-and-coming. A rising baseball player has nothing on one of legendary status.
Pro has set this debate to only one round, leaving barely any room for either of us to adequately argue. As Pro has not stated who the BoP lies on, i will take that role.
Lou Gehrig joined the New York Yankees full-time as a pinch hitter in 1923. He won the American League All-Star Award seven times, the American League MVP (Most Valuable Player) twice, and the World Series Champion Award six times. These awards alone prove that Gehrig is more fitting for the slate of best baseball player than Bryce Harper is. Aside from Gehrig's awards, he is the only baseball player ever to collect 400 total bases in five seasons.
Thus it is proven that Harper is not the best baseball player ever and Gehrig is a much more likely candidate.
