    PLEASE READ THE FORMAT AND RULES SECTION BEFORE VOTING. THANK YOU.

    FORMAT AND RULES

    Purpose: The purpose of this project is to create a Hall of Fame for each franchise whereby each franchise will honor those individuals whose contributions and accomplishments are most notable, significant, and enduring to that franchise's history. This project is not about simply honoring those with the best statistics with each franchise.

    Standards: Each franchise has its own unique history and context, and thus contributions and accomplishments that may stand out remarkably within one franchise's history, may not be so remarkable in another franchise's history. Standards from franchise to franchise will inherently vary, and thus there should be no impetus to create equal standards among the franchises or to aspire to the standards of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Consequently, subjectivity within the context of the franchise in question will play an inevitable role when considering an individual's contributions and accomplishments with respect to that franchise. In sum, a franchise's Hall of Fame should be unaffected by the standards and contexts of other franchises as well as the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and should be entirely a product of its own history.

    Election Format: Elections will be conducted one franchise at a time starting in chronological order with the oldest continuously and currently operational franchise. Each election will last approximately five days.
    - Ballot Size: Voters can select up to 15 players and 5 contributors per election. There is no minimum ballot size.
    - Ballot Editing: To account for ongoing discussion, voters may edit their ballots as often as necessary through the end of an election.
    - Election Percentage: Any individual that is listed on at least 75% of either the player or contributor submitted ballots will be elected to that team's Hall of Fame, but six votes minimum in all cases.
    - Subsequent Rounds: After an election has been performed for each franchise, a second round of elections will commence, again proceeding in chronological order. A third round of elections (and perhaps beyond) may also be held depending on interest.

    Eligibility:
    - Players: Players may be considered by any currently operational franchise for which they appeared and are eligible either immediately upon officially retiring or after having not appeared at any level of professional baseball for an entire season for reasons not due to injury.
    - Contributors: Individuals that contributed in other capacities to a franchise may be considered, including managers, coaches, executives, owners, and broadcasters. Contributors that are still active may only be elected by their current employing franchise, and cannot be considered by prior employing franchises until no longer active (this does not apply to individuals who are employed by a franchise only in nominal and/or non-integral ways, such as in consulting or public relations capacities).
    - Multiple Capacities: The totality of contributions and accomplishments with respect to a franchise are to be considered, and thus an individual can only be elected once by a franchise. For purposes of ballot size limits, an individual should be designated either a player or contributor based on what the voter perceives to be the individual's greater role with the franchise.
    - Relocations/Renaming: Franchises that have relocated and/or been renamed, may still consider and elect individuals that were with the franchise prior to the relocation/renaming.
    - Multiple Franchises: An individual may be considered and elected by multiple franchises.

    Franchise History
    - Founded: 1876 (NL for entire existence, though formed from remnants of the Boston Red Stockings of the National Association, founded in 1871)
    - Former Locations/Names: Boston Red Caps (1876-1882); Boston Beaneaters (1883-1906); Boston Doves (1907-1910); Boston Rustlers (1911); Boston Braves (1912-1935, 1941-1952); Boston Bees (1936-1940); Milwaukee Braves (1953-1965).

    Titles
    - World Series Championships: 3 (1914, 1957, 1995)
    - Pennants: 17 (1877, 1878, 1883, 1891, 1892, 1893, 1897, 1898, 1914, 1948, 1957, 1958, 1991, 1992, 1995, 1996, 1999)
    - Division Titles: 16 (1969, 1982, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005)

    Notable Player List
    The following is a list of inactive players who with this franchise had at least 3,000 plate appearances (or 2,500 if predominantly played during the 19th Century), 1,000 innings pitched, or appeared as pitcher in 200 games. This list is purely meant as a guide for players who contributed to this franchise over some modicum of time, though players with this franchise not appearing on this list may still be considered by voters, as it is entirely possible that a player may have made a significant and lasting contribution to this franchise despite having a relatively short tenure with the franchise.

                Just a reminder of my two cases for Braves still on the ballot:

                Billy Hamilton
                Hamilton was with the Braves franchise from 1896-1901, and is the CF with the most WAR during that time. He was the best CF in WAR in the following individual seasons: 1896, 1897, 1898 and 1900.

                John Clarkson
                Clarkson was with the team in 1888-1892, though only half the 1891 season. He was dominant in that time, though:
                He got a pitching Triple Crown (Wins, ERA and K's) in 1889
                He led the league (all players) in WAR in 1889, and was 6th in the same classification in 1890;
                In pitching WAR, he led the league in 1889, was 5th in 1890, 8th in 1892, and 9th in 1888;
                In ERA, he was first in 1889 and 3rd in 1892;
                In wins, he was first in 1889, 2d in 1888, and 7th in 1890;
                In won-loss percentage, he was first in 1889, 6th in 1888, and 9th in 1890;
                In strikeouts/ 9 IP, he was 5th in 1889 and 9th in 1888;
                In strikeouts, he was first in 1889, 2d in 1888, and 10th in 1890;
                and in IP, he led in both 1888 and 1889 and was 7th in 1890.

                This was in an era when pitchers often had all their careers in as few as five seasons, or at least all their productive years in such a span. Few if any in that time could match Clarkson's productivity in his years with the Braves.

                    With about 4 1/2 days left in this election, there's been six votes cast in this election, just enough to elect candidates, but only with a unanimous vote.
