John J. McGraw says: “There is no doubt in my mind as to George Sisler being the greatest first baseman of all time. He has so many good qualities that it is difficult to center attention on his hitting, his fielding or his base running. It should be remembered also that Sisler is an excellent pitcher. Sisler is a small man as compared with many of the great first basemen. Overcoming that lack of stature is in itself a mark of great ability.”
