The Greatest Pitchers of All Time

List Criteria: Vote up and add all of the very best MLB pitchers of all time.

Who are the greatest pitchers of all time? Trying to decide who is the absolute greatest MLB pitcher ever is challenging, to say the least, but it can be done, right here. This list includes some of the best Major League Baseball players of all time, but it is by no means complete. Add anyone you think is missing, vote for your favorites and of course, rerank this list in any order you choose.

Each of the excellent baseball pitchers on this list can, arguably, be called the "best." Some were known for their incredible fastballs; others, including Sandy Koufax and Bert Blyleven, are known for being some of the greatest curveball pitchers of all time. These are the famous pitchers who managed, with sheer skill, to outwit and beat some of the best hitters in baseball history, too.

If you're interested in some modern-era baseball phenoms, check out this list of the best current MLB pitchers, and vote for the current players you think deserve the top spots.
