You do not need any type of degree to play baseball. Many players have never even been to college let alone have a degree.

Not specific enough. Do you mean best baseball PLAYER, or best baseBALL? Rawlings makes all the baseballs used in professional baseball, so it might be considered the best ball. If you mean Player, that is up to conjecture. There have been many great players in the history of baseball and many good ones currently playing. Many can prove their point as to who the "best" is, or was, with statistics to prove the point. However, the term best is still speculative.
