  • All 19th Century Team

    Who makes your All-19th Century Team?

    Rules
    1. Some candidates will certainly have played the latter part of their career in the 20th Century. That doesn't mean we discount that portion of their career, but we are looking for the greatest players of the 19th Century. Please keep that in mind.

    2. Please come up with a 25-man roster plus 15 reserves. There are no positional requirements other than to have at least one player at each defensive position. Please use players at positions where they actually played a reasonable portion of their career. (25 games at catcher does not qualify one at catcher, sorry.) I'm not going to set a minimum number (or percentage) of games at a position, but please use common sense here.

    3. Feel free to include black players, Cuban players, etc. if you honestly feel one or more should make the cut.

    Last, but not least, have fun with this!
