Thomas E. Witte

The day after the MLB All-Star Game is the slowest sports day of the year. And since I refuse to lead Hot Clicks with the ESPYs, this seems like as good a time as any to check out the 100 best photos in sports history. And for more on Bobby Martin (pictured above), read Rick Reilly's 2005 story.
