Vote: The 50 best baseball players not in the Hall of Fame, Version 3.0

As Graham Womack notes…“I’ve kicked off voting for my annual project on the 50 best players not in the Hall of Fame. Big year for the project with so many newly eligible greats.”

As some of you may know, I do an annual project having people rank the 50 best baseball players not in the Hall of Fame. It’s that time again.

I invite anyone who’s interested to take part (please free also to pass ballots along to anyone interested.) To vote, click on this link which will take you a Google Form that’s accepting responses. I’ve also included a reference ballot with about 430 names.

I don’t have too many rules for this project, but here they are:

1. You must vote for 50 players. Next to each player you vote for, include a Y or N for if they belong in the Hall of Fame
2. Any player who’s been inactive at least five years is eligible, whether they’ve played in the majors or not
3. All votes are due by next Sunday December 9 at 9 p.m. PST. I’ll post the results on December 16

Beyond this, please feel free to email me at thewomack@gmail.com with any questions.

Anyhow, I look forward to seeing how you all vote!

When the list is finished, you can write the first couple of names in non-eraseable black ink.

Not a big fan of the interface. Just list the names sorted by position including some value stat such as WAR and let people post a Y next to the ones they want, and keep a running counter for them.

Voted last night.

You can take Deacon White's name off the list, now.

Wow it was hard to cut it down to 50.
