Cliff Eastham's 2011 MLB Living Legends
(c) 2012 Cliff Eastham

This article is an assembly of the best living players in MLB history. It was prepared by me along with my oldest friend Al Rinker. Between the two of us, there is 100 years of baseball knowledge. We have forgotten more than most fans will ever know.

To become a member of this team, a player must meet certain criterion. First and foremost the player must be alive. Secondly, he must be retired from the game.

Therefore, you will not find Albert Pujols on it, and you will not find Babe Ruth on it. The majority of the players on this elite squad will be born after 1940.

I have taken into account the steroid problem and have decided that if a position is seriously linked to PED use, he will not be on the roster. Tough love, but I only feel it is right. Seven MVP's and Cy Young's, please.

If a player played multiple positions in his career, he may be placed on a secondary position if his statistics warrant it.

We will have eight position players with a designated hitter. We will also have a five-man pitching rotation and one relief pitcher.

Having said all of that let us proceed with the winners.
