We guys spend hours arguing about who was the greatest sportsman ever. If we just changed that word to sportsperson, there wouldn’t be so much arguing. Babe Zaharias (1914-1956) broke world records in basketball, baseball, javelin and hurdles! Versatile or what?
In a 1982 poll of sports historians, she was ranked America’s second-greatest athlete, behind Babe Ruth (after whom she was named), even though he only played one sport. Even ranked #2, she was underrated!
