  • What do these players have in common?

    What do these players have in common? Unless I mistakenly overlooked someone, this is a complete list.

    Barry Larkin
    Johnny Evers
    Gabby Hartnett
    Yogi Berra
    Tony Lazzeri
    Travis Jackson
    Bill Dickey
    Ray Schalk
    Tony Pérez
    Rick Ferrell

    EDIT: Two players were removed from the list because they don't belong on it (Al López and Wilbert Robinson).

    What's with the accent mark on Al Lopez's name above? it doesn't appear on his Hall of Fame plaque, or on Al Lopez Field or Al Lopez Park in Tampa, or in his own signature.

      I copied & pasted his name from his B-R page.

        Something to do with the HoF? Can we get a hint?

          Yes, it's HOF related.

          No more hints just yet.

            They never led the league in anything?

              Close enough! They are HOF position players that never led the league in any good statistic. I am only counting the 21 main stats on their B-R page. A few of them did lead the league in some of the negative stats (CS, SO, GDP).

                Joe Gordon led the league in games twice. He also led in GDP and SO in 1942, the year he won the MVP. Over Ted Williams. Who had a Triple Crown

                  But, Lopez and Robinson were elected to the HOF as managers.

                      just take them out & it's still a good question.
