  • Best Baseball Player by Birth Year - 1952

    Here's another fun project idea I had - we are going to name the best baseball players by birth year. The rules are simple: Vote for who you believe to be the best player on the given list, with each player on that list sharing the same year of birth.

    You are allowed to vote for a maximum of two players (because oftentimes it seems individuals prefer not to choose between batters and pitchers, rather choosing one of each).

    A few of the early years are already taken care of for us, as there was only one person who played Major League Baseball born that year.

    A couple notes about this project:

    1) The lists are constructed using information from Baseball-Reference.com. They are rather arbitrarily made, however I think they will cover the top players from each year.

    2) The lists will, at most, contain 20-25 names.

    3) Only MLB players (including NA players) are being considered for this project. I am omitting Negro Leaguers, pre-Major Leaguers, Japanese guys etc. for the sake of ease.

    4) Though I am including only major league players, for those who spent time playing in the pre-Major League era or the Negro Leagues (et cetera), you may take into consideration this peripheral playing experience. Weigh it as as you see fit.

    5) The poll will stay open for one week.

    Which of the following individuals was the best player? You may vote for up to two players.

    Dave Collins
    John Denny
    Dan Ford
    Terry Forster
    Greg Gross

    Blackout: You may vote for up to two players. You voted for three. Please tell me which guy you want to remove from your list, or I'll disqualify your votes entirely.
