    2015 Players VC Election

    Below is the final ballot for the 2015 VC Players Election. Voters can vote for as many candidates as they wish with 75% support required to elect a player. Voting will be open for seven days, at which point we'll tabulate votes provided we have a quorum consisting of at least 12 of the 15 VC members having voted. Anyone is free to participate in the discussion and submit a ballot but only ballots from the 15 VC members will be counted. Voting ends on Monday, March 4 at 7:00 PM EST.

    - The 2016 ballot will consist of:
    1) Every player that previously made a final VC ballot;
    2) Every player that received at least 1/3 support in the regular election;
    3) Every player that lasted 15 years on the regular ballot.

    -Voters can vote for as many players as they wish on the ballot and can also vote for up to 2 write-in candidates. If any write-in candidates receive at least 50% support, I'll list him on the next ballot. I will supply a master list so voters know who is eligible for write-ins.

    - If a player on the ballot does not receive at least 2 votes he will not appear on the following ballot (though the player will be eligible for write-in votes). So the 2015 ballot will consist of:
    1) Every player from the 2015 ballot who received at least 2 votes;
    2) Every newly eligible player that received 1/3 support in the regular election or lasted 15 years on the regular ballot; and
    3) Any players who received at least 4 (or roughly 1/3) votes as a write-in in the 2015 elections.

              This will be one of my larger ballots, as I've lessened my own standards a bit and hope to rectify some oversights that I feel are a bit too curious.

                      Buddy Bell

                      Gavvy Cravath
                      Darrell Evans
                      Dwight Evans
                      Tommy John

                          Did we elect Willard Brown?

                          Still disappointed to see Tommy John not picking up support. He's clearly within our range (17 year period with an OPS+ over 115, that does it here in terms of career success).

                            We elected him in the 1992 Negro League Players VC election.
