This is Ruth's 9th MMP award and 14th time appearing on the ballot.

Nobody has more MMP awards than Ruth and only Bonds, Speaker, Aaron, Mays and Cobb have been on-ballot in more elections.

Bell, Cochrane, Cronin, Gehringer and Terry are HoM players who have now been named on an MMP ballot. The list of HoM players covered by the MMP project who haven't appeared on an MMP ballot is shrinking quickly.

Averill, Earl
Dickey, Bill
Grant, Frank
Griffith, Clark
Herman, Billy
Hubbell, Carl
Mackey, Biz
McGraw, John (best seasons before 1901)
Medwick, Joe
Ruffing, Red
Trouppe, Quincy

Thanks, everyone. Though he didn't get a vote, Dazzy Vance is the NL pitching MMP based on off-ballot mentions.
