About This Quiz

Baseball has been around a long time, and during that time there have been many legendary players, all with different skill sets and all with very different personalities. Some of them are home-run hitters that are larger than life, some are intimidating strikeout kings, and some are scrappy players who are tough as nails. Which baseball legend is most like you?

Might you be Babe Ruth, who even though he wasn't in great shape and liked to party a little more than he should, still was possibly the best baseball player of all time? Or might you be Jackie Robinson, who was brave enough to break the color barrier in baseball? Ty  Cobb may have been the hardest working guy in baseball who didn't mind taking you out with a hard slide, while Ted Williams was quiet, incredibly talented and intellectual about the way he approached the game. Or do you think you would have been a famous Yankee, like the amazing Mickey Mantle or Joe Dimaggio, or a pitching legend, such as Sandy Koufax or Walter Johnson? Or maybe you were kind of a class clown, like the unforgettable Yogi Berra.
