  • Home Run HoF Porject: Round 1

    Home Run Hall of Fame

    Rules:
    • This is a hall of fame for home run hitters only.
    • We're going to induct position players yearly at the same rate as the actual HoF including the Negro Leagues. All halves will be rounded up.
    • In 1950, '60, '70, etc. we will elect one eligible pitcher, just for fun.
    • I'll close and open elections on Sunday mornings.
    • Players become eligible after being retired for five seasons including Gehrig, Clemente and alike.
    • You are not limited to the 25 career leaders I list. You may take anything or nothing into account - position, context, peak, longevity, clutch homers, but you need to keep it home run-centric. We are not taking slugging or doubles and triples or anything like that into consideration.
    • Players receive points inverted and doubled so...

    Example:

    1. Ruth - 8 points
    2. Gehrig - 6 points
    3. DiMaggio - 4 points
    4. Mantle - 2 points

    "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

                  For the purposes of this election, please define "home run hitters".
                  "It is a simple matter to erect a Hall of Fame, but difficult to select the tenants." -- Ken Smith
                  "I am led to suspect that some of the electorate is very dumb." -- Henry P. Edwards
                  "You have a Hall of Fame to put people in, not keep people out." -- Brian Kenny
                  "There's no such thing as a perfect ballot." -- Jay Jaffe

                    Lol, players that hit a lot of home runs.

                      Am I missing something? The rules don't say how many we can vote for.

                      I understand a specific number of players will be inducted each round, but that doesn't necessarily dictate the number of players we can vote for per ballot.

                              So, the more players that you vote for, the more points that your highest ranked people get?

                              if so, I like it.
