What do Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, Sammy Sosa and Mickey Mantle have in common? As you likely guessed, they were all horrible baseball players. Yup – some of the most inept batters you’ll find in baseball history. Complete and utter losers, really. At least that’s the impression one might get when you see their names included among the batters with the most strikeouts. (Reggie Jackson holds the dubious honor as the #1 strikeout batter in history, having struck out 2,597 times at bat.) Of course, you know the punch line. They were also some of the top hitters to grace the game.
