The greatest 19th century batter was analyzed in these threads:

1902 Ballot Discussion

First Basemen Positional Thread

If you know of any others, please let me know.

fun to look at the old threads sometimes.

this was one comment on the 1902 ballot discussion:
"there is no way that there are 15 players deserving of being elected. Now I'm being forced to vote for players that I know in my heart should not be elected."

turns out that the top 14 all were elected (Browning-Williamson were 15th-16th), as well as 17th-place Pike and 19th-place Pearce (Welch was 18th, CJones was 26th with 2 votes).

I thought that comment seemed funny at first, but only 16 got elected, so maybe not.

ยป September 3, 1903: On the heels of a string of rain-outs, Hudson sweeps Poughkeepsie (Class-C Hudson River League) in the 20th century's only quadruple header, winning by scores of 2-1, 6-4, 3-1 and 4-2. [As pointed out by several historians including Bill Deane, there was one in 1889.] Hall of Famer Dan Brouthers is a member of the Poughkeepsie team in that 1903 through 1905.
