However, I have picked 5 choices among the hundreds of legends. You may disagree with me, or agree. But, I think I have chosen almost the right ones of the 5 best pitchers.

Now, I am going to briefly mention them and their record in the following section.

5 Best Baseball Pitchers Of All Time

Do you know what are the best pitches to throw in baseball? However, undoubtedly the best pitchers throw the best pitches. Here is the list of mine that I have picked as the 5 best baseball pitchers of all time.

  • Christy Mathewson

Christy Mathewson is always on the top of the list while you search for the best pitcher. Even he is topped in different categories in pitching. Christy played baseball from 1900 to 1916.

Randy completed his career with an ERA of 3.29, along with his 303 wins and 4,875 strikeouts. His 303-win is all-time 5th and 4,875 strikeouts are all-time second among the left-handers.

He has 5 single-season highest strikeout records among the seven in modern baseball. He won 10 All-Star, 1 World Series, 5 Cy Young Awards in his career. He was also inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015.

  • Pedro Martinez

Pedro Martinez debuted in MLB in 1992 for Los Angeles Dodgers. He has a career of 219 wins, along with 2.93 ERA, and 3,154 strikeouts. His 219 victories rank him fourth all-time in terms of winning percentage in baseball history.

However, his 3,154 strikeouts come from less than 3,000 innings pitched. In this category, he is the only one. Martinez won 8 All-Star, 1 World Series, 3 Cy Young Awards, and many more. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015.


If you count 10 best baseball pitchers of all time, Ryan Nolan is another one who would be on the list for his fastest pitching.  However, in my opinion, the mentioned five are the top 5 pitchers in terms of their performance, and particular significance.

Also, Satchel Paige is another one, who would be on the top list arguably. He had played for 40 years in the professional league.
