Modern players without a doubt.. if you hit .270 now as a player, it'd be like hitting .300+ back in the '40s and '50s and what not..
Now that may seem like a blunt statement, which it is.. but back in the day you had guys drinking beer before games and guys with beer guts during the games. The fastest pitch record in 50's was 80mph, I believe. 80mph is what 13 and 14 year olds are facing today in Travel Ball.
No discredit to the legends that played back then, though, but I highly doubt they could get away with what they did today.
