Most significant event
ESPN and this forum have asked what the most memorable event in baseball history has been, probably many times. I searched this site (unsuccessfully) for a poll or thread on a similar question:
What do you folks consider to be the most SIGNIFICANT event in baseball history?
There are lots to choose from, from Cartwright and/or Doubleday, to the organization of the NA or NL, to Harry Wright, to Landis, to Jackie -- a whole slew of others.
For me, it was Ruth going to the Yanks. While I have no doubt he would have flourished as a hitter AND pitcher for the Red Sox, it seems to me that Ruth blossoming as a the greatest hitter ever for baseball's greatest franchise ever led the way to baseball prosperity and dominance as the major sport through most of the last century.
Of course, years from now, Selig's stewardship might be looked at as the most significant; but for now, I'm going with Ruth and the Yanks.
