    Pete Browning
    George Gore
    Paul Hines
    Tony Mullane
    Lip Pike
    Hardy Richardson
    Harry Stovey
    Ezra Sutton
    Mickey Welch

    The voting results:

    I fixed it, thanks!

    I edited my post to remove Harry Wright since we are only considering playing careers.

    You do have room. From the OP:
    You MUST vote for 12 players in each election.

    For the time being, I would suggest considering only their playing careers as I am mulling doing contributor elections down the line.

    Charlie Bennett
    George Gore
    Paul Hines - I think seriously underrated here
    Charley Jones
    Cal McVey
    Tony Mullane
    Dickey Pearce
    Lip Pike
    Hardy Richardson
    Harry Stovey
    Ezra Sutton
    Mickey Welch

    sure keep them on the ballot
    Jim McCormick
    Levi Meyerle

    --I had 17 guys after my first cut, although I don't neccessarily support that many. That was just how many I thought deserved consideration on a big hall ballot.

    I would like more clarification on this as well as I would vote for Hanlon, Mack, and H. Wright if we are looking at their entire careers.

    Edit: per post #13 we are to consider playing careers so Harry Wright is off - Bond is in. Pearce is on the next two list.

    Here's a link to the previous election:

    A chart or separate post that links all previous elections would be very helpful for future elections.
