Which Sentence sounds better: (Also pick one word in the parenthesis that correctly fits in the sentence.):

1. Joseph Paul DiMaggio was one of the greatest baseball players.

2. Joseph Paul DiMaggio was one of the greatest baseball players (of/in) his era.

3. Joseph Paul DiMaggio was one of the greatest baseball players (in/of) the world.

** Also, in sentence 2, should I capitalize the letter "e" in era?

Please Help!!
Thanks!!

  • English -

    I would say #2 = of his era, and no, it is not capitalized.

    Sra

  • English -

    3. . . . players in the world.

  • English -

    which sentence is correct, #2 or #3?
    SraJMcGin chose #2 & Ms. Sue chose #3.
    I do not know which one to choose.....
    HELP!!

  • English -

    All three sentences are correct with the inclusion of the right preposition.

    Both 2 and 3 are better, though, because they include more information.
