Babe Ruth should have 1st Base!

SDS

I could be totally wrong, but looking at Babe Ruth’s career, he only won the MVP in 1923. So I’m assuming that’s the year of his MVP card (I can’t really tell the year In the video). I decided to go to baseball reference and look at his fielding log that year to see what position he played. He played every OF position and 1st Base! Only four games but a few were 9 innings worth so he should have 1st as a secondary. My apologies if this has been brought up already!

If Pablo Sandoval and Kyle Schwarber can have Secondary C, then I concur

But Eddie Rosario can't have secondary 2B 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭

SDS

Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I feel like if Babe Ruth had 1B secondary it would make every other 1B that is released afterwards almost obsolete. Who wouldn’t want to play Ruth’s maxed out hitting attributes at a position where fielding doesn’t seem to matter.

I get what you are saying but if Stan the man, who played 1 game at first That season got the secondary position, than babe is definitely going get it!

Now all I need is a Jimmy Foxx with Catcher secondary position!

Yeah it would make sense to give Ruth 1B based on the fact that he did play there during that season. However, the fact that Musial can play 1B makes me question whether or not they’ll give Ruth 1B as well. They just came out with Musial, would they really outclass him at 1B this soon? It’s like if they dropped Lou Gehrig in this program right now.

Obviously I will not complain one bit if Babe does indeed get 1B and he will definitely be playing there for me. I’m just not getting my
hopes up yet.

SDS

The appearance of Babe Ruth made Musial expendable in my lineup. And the market is reflecting that

I would say if Babe played the position four times as much as Stan did (four games to one game) its almost certain he will have it as a secondary as the positions of awards cards reflect that certain season compared to prime cards or SS

How big of deal would it be to play him at first without it being a secondary? I don't know how big of a penalty a player receives being completely out of position.

It would be a mess. The player model wouldn't have the right animations and would drop lots of tosses to first.

A couple years ago you could do this, literally could put any player at 1b and they would do fine. But they took that out. If 1b is not a secondary the player will drop every ball thrown to them

Why would the 3rd best 1st baseman pre-Babe make all the others obsolete lol

I hope you are right! Would love to throw Babe at 1B on my squad and be able to keep an outfield of Trout, Mantle, and Walker. Another thing that might point to him having 1B secondary is the fact that they gave him the awards card instead of his signature series from MLB 19. What could possibly change between the two cards? Maybe it is that 1B secondary 😄
