Congratulations to Willie Keeler for winning our 7th Greatest 19th Century Player! He won 3 of our 8 votes (37%). He defeated Roger Connor, Bill Lange and George Davis, who each received a single vote, (12%).
The 8th round for Greatest 19th Century Player is now open. It will close after a brief period. We will no longer wait until we got 15 votes, as previously. That often took months and even a year to achieve.
