The Sultan of Swat. The King of Crash. The Colossus of Clout. The Great Bambino. Babe Ruth. It's tough being a legend of legends, but Babe Ruth's ability to hit the ball is almost as mythical as Hercules.

Ruth is the career leader in slugging percentage and finished with a career batting average of .342. The power he had in the batter's box is the stuff of legend and no pitcher from any era would be successful against him.

#TeamScherzer

Babe Ruth belted 714 career home runs, but he wouldn't have nearly that many if he faced a pitcher with the stuff that Max Scherzer has.

Scherzer's four-seam fastball is nearly impossible to track because of the movement it has. Working off of that kind of heat, he will drop in a slider, changeup and curveball that usually clocks in around 10 mph lower with devastating movement. He also has a cutter he will employ to keep batters off balance.

Ruth could hit the fastballs of his generation, but he wouldn't know what to do with Scherzer and his versatility.
