If someone were to put together a list of the 10 very best pitchers in the past 50 years or more, what would those pitchers look like? Size? Body Type? Velocity? Command? Best Pitch? Etc.?
Just off the top of my head, others will probably have a different list...
Roger Clemens, Greg Maddux, Pedro Martinez, Randy Johnson, Clayton Kershaw, Sandy Koufax, Bob Gibson, Nolan Ryan, Mariano Rivera, Steve Carleton.
The list above includes Tall, Short, and in between. Skinny, muscular, and in between. LHP and RHP. Pitchers that relied on high velocity, command, special pitches, etc. Even different training methods. I think any list would be just as diversified.
To me, it just shows that there is more than one way to accomplish greatness.
