    Here are our inaugural inductees:

    Tim Keefe
    King Kelly
    Old Hoss Radbourn
    John Clarkson
    Al Spalding
    Jack Glasscock
    Deacon White
    George Wright
    Ross Barnes
    Pud Galvin
    Monte Ward
    Bob Caruthers

    Two players, Tip O'Neill and Ed Morris, were saved from elimination as they appeared on Would Have Voted For lists.

    Here are the voting statistics for this round:

    Code:
    Name			Votes received	   Total voters         Percentage
    
    Tim		Keefe		10		10		100.00%

    Tommy 		Bond		4		10		40.00%
    Dickey		Pearce		3		10		30.00%
    Charlie		Buffinton	2		10		20.00%
    Bobby		Mathews		2		10		20.00%
    Harry		Wright		2		10		20.00%

    Charley		Jones		1		10		10.00%
    Jim		Whitney		1		10		10.00%
    Ned		Hanlon		1		10		10.00%
    Oyster		Burns		1		10		10.00%
    Neat. Looks like the full ballots and lower cutoff should ensure this will well and truly be a big Hall.

    yes - Gore, Hines, Browning.

    Do you have a personal Hall already made up? If so, would you care to submit it to the Single Ballot HOF (see sig)? I'd be much obliged, Coach.

    From the ballot in post one, compile a list of the 18 players you think are the best or most worthy for the Hall of Fame. It must be 18 players. You may also add three "would have voted fors" to the bottom of the list (as in, you would have voted for them if you had room), which will save them from falling off the ballot if they do not receive any votes.

    I had a hard time with 15. I always twin Gore and Hines so I let them be and gave the last spot to The Louisville Slugger over Caruthers, Bond, Glasscock and Corcoran to name a few.

    Edit: My would have voted for if I had room pecking order
    1-Glasscock 2-Hines 3-Gore
    if there is room for more 4-Caruthers 5-Corcoran 6-Bennett 7-Bond

    others but not all that if there is room would get my vote: Flint, Jones, O'Neill, Orr

    You might want top waive the 5% rule for the first few elections,
    Or just dump the 5% rule altogether. If a player is worthy of being on the ballot in the first place, there's no harm in letting him ride out his 15 years on the ballot. That way you don't have to be concerned if a guy gets squeezed out by unusually strong competition.

    Alternatively, since it's up to you to decide who makes the ballot, just keep the number of candidates at a constant 50 every election, while always staying open to suggestions on players you may have overlooked.

    Also, I don't think I would be so quick to raise the ballot size or to lower the percentage needed for election. Since you're starting as early as 1900, the initial glut of good candidates will soon play itself out; in four or five elections we'll have enshrined those 20 players. After that happens you may need to adjust the rules as the voting will tend to become more fragmented. So wait and see.

    I'm going to compromise with myself and others here. I'm going to raise the number of required votes to 12 in a regular election. In this election, I will up it to 18. I will lower the required election percentage to 65. And! I will allow members to post a list of up to three "Would have voted fors" in this and perhaps for a few elections into the future...that is, you would have voted for them if you had room. If any of them do not receive a vote this election, then they will be saved from falling off the ballot. If they are saved, however, that will still count as a time on the ballot, still making it so they can appear on the ballot a maximum of 15 times.

    I'll give people time to update their posts. If they don't after a few days, I'll send them a private message.
    You sound like you're on an infomercial.

    I updated my ballot.

    Pretty sure there are 3-4 guys on my list that I would not elect to a personal HOF.
