  • Ranking the HoF Players: 6-10

    Project Summary: To rank the worthiness of the players inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame from most worthy to least worthy.

    Election Format: Voters will submit ballots ranking their 10 most worthy remaining Hall of Fame players in order of worthiness. Each first place vote will be worth 10 points, with each successive rank being worth one point less than the previous rank, ending in a tenth place vote being worth 1 point. Players will also receive one additional point for each ballot they are listed on and players must be listed on at least three ballots in order to be elected. The five players with the highest support at the end of each election will be elected in the order of their support. Elections will last approximately seven days.
    - Tiebreakers: In the event of a tie among players at the end of an election, the first tiebreaker will number of first place votes in that election. The second tiebreaker will be total number of ballot appearances in that election. In the event that there remains a tie, there will be a three day run-off by poll. Players that lose in a run-off will slot into the next ranking spot.

    Factors to Consider: As this project focuses in players inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, subjective qualities beyond just statistics can be considered in determining a player's relative worthiness.

    Player Eligibility: Only players that have been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame as players are eligible, including Negro League players and 19th Century players. A complete list of individuals that have been inducted as players is available at the National Baseball Hall of Fame's website, and is recreated below along with each player's corresponding BBF Rank as determined by this project:

    1) Babe Ruth
    2) Willie Mays
    3) Ty Cobb
    4) Ted Williams
    5) Hank Aaron

                  Two suggestions:
                  1) provide a link to the previous election;
                  2) provide an alphabetical list of inductees.

                  My ballot:
                  1. Wagner
                  2. J Robinson
                  3. Mantle
                  4. W. Johnson
                  5. J. Gibson
                  6. Hornsby
                  7. Gehrig
                  8 Speaker
                  9. Musial
                  10. Charleston

                    I agree, both of these would be helpful. I'll look into adding when I have some time. Thanks.

                              I'd like to see a list of who we elected alphabetically and who is still available alphabetically once we get past the top 25 or so. It would help us keep track of who is eligible and who we already ranked.
