Graham Womack recently wrote a piece, “The 40 most important people in baseball history, ranked” on The Sporting News website.
“The greatest thing about baseball, perhaps, is its history. In nearly 150 years of play in leagues and informal competition that goes back further, many people have made baseball’s history what it is today.”
The article lists 40 players, but top executives, media members and even Supreme Court jurists who have done the most to shape Major League Baseball.
Doc Adams appears as #17 on the list!
