Hall of Merit - the early years
Hi there folks!
Joe and I have a lot of work to do to get the Hall of Merit off the ground.
I think the biggest challenge before the first election is getting people familiar with the eligible players.
In principle, any player whose career finished before 1911 is eligible. Because we are dealing with 40 years of baseball I decided to break down the player lists into more managable parts: 1) those who last played in the bigs before 1891; 2) those not in the first group who last played before 1901; 3) and those remaining who last played before 1911.
I’ve made a list of the players who played in parts of at least 10 years and left the bigs before 1891, here it is:
1) “games” is career games played, including in the National Association
By no means does this include every quality player of the 1871-1890 era - for one thing, many of them played past 1890. I’ll feature them in upcoming lists.
