This is not a specific-enough question. Outfielder? Joe Dimaggio. Hitter? Ted Williams. I would not pick either as the best outfielder ever. I think you have to go with Hank Aaron overall, and then Willie Mays, who was probably the best outfielder ever in the field (and one of my childhood heroes).

Joe Dimaggio because he got to marry Marilyn Monroe

@ emt333: Dimaggio missed 3 years of baseball to fight the war, too :-) Also, don’t forget about his 56-game hitting streak, his nagging injuries, and that 457-foot long left-center porch at Yankee Stadium… Myself, I call it a tie between the 2 in terms of overall quality…
