  • Retrospective Rookie of the Year Award: 1909

    1909 is here! It was an underrated season that saw two NL teams win 104+ games and the Tigers win their third straight pennant (only to lose their third straight World Series to Honus Wagner's powerhouse Pirates).

    In order to cast a ballot, please rank your top three choices in both the American League and the National League. Select only from the lists below, please.

    Voting will close at 6 AM Central Time on Sunday, March 4.

              "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

                    Voting is now closed. Results will be up shortly, though my research is currently incomplete for the 1910 season, because I've had a crazy week. I may have the 1910 thread up later, or I may have to take the week off. We'll see what I'm able to do in the next few hours.
