All-Time Greatest Ballplayer

*Note*  This isn't necessarily Royals-related.  However, I feel it's a topic relevant of extended attention on virtually any team-oriented medium.

Which ballplayer do you feel is the greatest to ever play?  I ask this because we recently resumed an epic 121 player battle of All-Time Ballplayer Survivor over at Royals Nation, with - who else - Babe Ruth emerging as the "first annual" champion.  The contest itself took 3 1/2 months to play.  My gratitude to all RR readers and members who participated.
