When looking at the all time hits totals leaders I noticed that long time Oriole First Baseman Eddie Murray ranks 12th.  Wow!  I had no idea his career totals were so high.  Eddie Murray was a solid hitter and one of the all time great Orioles.

Whenever I think of Eddie Murray I think of a first baseman who surpassed him in hitting achievements, Albert Pujols.

So who’s the best switch-hitter in history?

There aren't many competitors to the Mick in history. No switch hitter had his power. Yogi Berra used to say that if Mantle only batted left-handed, he would hit .400 with 60 HRs, but Mantle was a phenomenal switch-hitter. 

The guy in today's game that reminds me most of Mantle is Mike Trout. Now imagine how amazing Trout would be if he could bat 67% of the time from the batter's box that is a step and a half closer to first base?
