            Sorry for the delay, but this first election is now over and the results are below. I've also decided to add a new rule in tallying votes. As we go on, I'm concerned about results being skewed by outliers - that is when one or two voters for whatever reason rank a player inordinately high compared to the rest of the electorate, prompting that player to be elected based on the support of a very small minority. So to stem against that, each player will receive an extra point for each ballot they are listed on (thus helping players with widespread support catch up to players listed high on just a couple of ballots), and players must be on at least three ballots to be included among the five players elected. I'll post all these new rules at the top of the next election.

            Here are the results, the top five were elected, everyone else is back into the pool:

            1) Babe Ruth: 286 (259 + 27 ballots; 23 first place votes)
            2) Willie Mays: 227 (200 + 27 ballots; 1 first place vote)
            3) Ty Cobb: 205 (178 + 27 ballots)
            4) Ted Williams: 172 (147 + 25 ballots)
            5) Hank Aaron: 152 (129 + 23 ballots)

            6) Honus Wagner: 131 (111 + 20 ballots; 2 first place votes)
            7) Walter Johnson: 126 (102 + 24 ballots; 1 first place vote)
            8) Jackie Robinson: 101 (87 + 14 ballots)
            9) Lou Gehrig: 75 (58 + 17 ballots)
            10) Cy Young: 54 (41 + 13 ballots)
            11) Stan Musial: 45 (34 + 11 ballots)
            12) Josh Gibson: 39 (31 + 8 ballots)
            13) Mickey Mantle: 28 (22 + 6 ballots)
            14) Rogers Hornsby: 22 (16 + 6 ballots)
            15) Cap Anson: 16 (14 + 2 ballots)
            16) Roberto Clemente: 14 (11 + 3 ballots)
            17) Satchel Paige: 10 (7 + 3 ballots)
            18) Oscar Charleston: 9 (7 + 2 ballots)
            19) Pete Alexander: 6 (4 + 2 ballots)
            t20) Joe DiMaggio: 6 (5 + 1 ballot)
            t20) John Ward: 6 (5 + 1 ballot)
            22) King Kelly: 5 (4 + 1 ballot)
            23) Cal Ripken Jr: 4 (2 + 2 ballots)
            t24) Christy Mathewson: 4 (3 + 1 ballot)
            t24) Tris Speaker: 4 (3 + 1 ballot)
