  • Home Run HoF Project: Year 6 - 1943


    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
    1943 Election - 3 Inductees: Ballots of 6
    (players retired after 1937 season or earlier)

    "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.”

                  I was only doing eligible players. I should delineate that in the post.

                  I honestly thought the Frisch votes happened in the early 60's or I would have planned for this better.

                    Also sorry for not updating this earlier in the week. I'm going to make sure all the elections are open for at least a week. They might go longer depending on when I can count them up. Hope it isn't a big deal, it's the internet the project isn't going anywhere, you know where to find it.

                      Is there a reason those 3 players are not eligible? They are retired after the 1937 season.

                        Damnit, they're being added. Thanks

                            I'm changing my ballot to include Williamson. Despite the short porch it's more of a big deal than what a lot of these guys accomplished - home run wise.

                              6. Wildfire Schulte

                              if there was a 7th spot it would have been williamson. After that it would be a battle among Heilmann, Bottomley and Kelly. Crawford might be the last pre live ball era guy to make a ballot for me.
