MLB Athlete Number 48 - Torii Hunter

When you think of the number 48 and pro sports, two names might come to mind. Jimmie Johnson and "Moose" Johnston. But don't forget one of the best MLB centerfielders to play the game. Torii Hunter, wearing MLB jersey number 48, isn't called "Spiderman" for nothing.

MLB Athlete Number 47 - Tom Glavine

You know Glavine was a great MLB pitcher. But did you know that he was drafted by the Kings of the NHL in 1984? Yeah, he was. He's probably a really good golfer too. But that's not why he's listed here. He's listed here because he was the best MLB athlete to ever wear the number 47.

He is a Hall of Famer to be, and a member of the 300 win club. A career 3.54 ERA and 2,607 strikeouts over 22 seasons don't hurt either. He also led the National League in wins an impressive five times.

Yes, Pedro Martinez IS the best MLB athlete to ever wear the uniform number 45. Don't get me wrong here. Bob Gibson was an awesome pitcher. One of the best ever. But do you remember how good Pedro was in his heydey? Do you? Do you remember how he dominated hitters with his fastball? Although Pedro's stats need to be adjusted a tad since this post was written, take a look at the comparison between Pedro's stats and Gibson's stats here. Real close, but the edge goes to Pedro.
