Gehrig, his 2 MMP awards and 11 times on ballot puts him very close to Albert Pujols (3/11) - tops among first basemen.

Josh Gibson is one ballot appearance away from tying John Henry Lloyd (12) among Negro League players. He's a spot ahead of Joe Williams and Oscar Charleston (10). Gibson also beats out Gary Carter and Yogi Berra (9) for most among catchers.

That's a pretty clear top five
Lou Gehrig as MMP, AL MMP, AL Position Player MMP
Carl Hubbell as pitching MMP, NL MMP
Lefty Grove as AL pitching MMP
Arky Vaughan as NL position player MMP
Josh Gibson as Negro Leagues MMP
It doesn't often break down like that.
