Once in a Generation Hitters

Players with a career OPS+ of 170 or higher, by generation:

National: none

American: Dan Brouthers (170)

Deadball: Shoeless Joe Jackson (170)

Liveball: Babe Ruth (206), Lou Gehrig (179), Rogers Hornsby (175)

G.I.: Ted Williams (190)

Silent: Mickey Mantle (172)

Boom: none

Generation X: Barry Bonds (182)

Nine players, one per generation. The Liveball Generation was blessed with three such hitters (and two played for the Yankees from 1923 to 1934), while the National and Boom Generations had none.
