Weird. Is OOTP not allowed to use the term Gold Glove? did that get retired?

I'm not sure why it doesn't default to Gold Glove, but Gold Glove and Silver Slugger are the two awards that you have to edit the name.  I would guess because they are sponsored by Rawlings and Louisville Slugger (I believe).  I've gone in and edited them, so they should be correct going forward though.

1894 Hall of Fame Ballot

 

 photo HOF 1894 Ballot.png

 

If I was going to describe the 1894 Hall of Fame Ballot I'd call it uninspiring.  I shouldn't let me feelings cloud the ballot, but 3B Ezra Sutton returns after receiving 61.6% of the vote.  A career .260 hitter Sutton drove in 642 runs in his career and scored 821. 

 

SS Tom Barlow, SP Joe Borden, SP George Bradley, C John Clapp, SS Davy Force, and 3B Andy Leonard appear on the ballot for the first time. 

 

JAWS Score

Tom Barlow: 15.1

John Bass: 11.8

Joe Borden: 13.2

George Bradley: 32.6

John Clapp: 8.5

Davy Force: 13.6

Chick Fulmer: 18.9

Dick Higham: 5.5

Andy Leonard: 8.6

Mike McGeary: 7.8

Lip Pike: 15.7

Ezra Sutton: 25.1

Fred Treacey: 3.8

George Wright: 14.7

Tom York: 12.1

1894 Hall of Fame Results

 

For the first time in four years no player was elected to the Hall of Fame.  Ezra Sutton was the high vote getter with 67% of the vote, seeing his total increase from 61.6% last year.  The 11 time All-Star was a .260 career hitter has eight more years on the ballot to try and sway the remaining 13.4%  of the vote.

 

Lip Pike knows the frustration of waiting for results, only to come up short.  Pike appeared on 59.3% of ballots in his sixth year on the ballot. 

 

Both RF John Bass and CF Fred Treacey fell off the ballot this year, each in the fourth year on the ballot.  Also dropping from the ballot was SS Davy Force who failed to get 5% of the vote on his first year on the ballot. 

 

1894 Hall of Fame Voting Results:

 

3B Ezra Sutton 67.0 (2nd year)

1895 Hall of Fame Results

 

 photo HOF 1895 Jim ORourke.png

 

Jim O'Rourke becomes the fourth catcher inducted into the Hall of Fame after receiving 93.3% of the votes.  The Hall of Fame still only consists of pitchers and catchers.  I've detailed O'Rourke's accomplishments, and definitely think he is worthy of induction, and perhaps the best catcher that we've seen so far.

 

Ezra Sutton continues to inch up, appearing on 73% of the ballots in his third year.  Lip Pike jumped from 59.3% to 72.6% of the votes this year, but Pike will just have three years on the ballot to cross what so far has been the elusive 75% threshold. 

 

CF Holly Hollingshead, SP Joe Borden, and 2B Jack Manning failed to appear on 5% of the ballots and will be dropped off the ballot.

 

1895 Hall of Fame Voting Results:

 

C Jim H O'Rourke 93.3 (1st year) Inducted HOF

3B Ezra Sutton 73.0 (3rd year)

2B Lip Pike 72.6 (7th year)

SP George Bradley 27.7 (2nd year)

SS George Wright 18.9 (6th year)

3B Andy Leonard 9.5 (2nd year)

SS Chick Fulmer 9.1 (4th year)

C John Clapp 7.4 (2nd year)

SS Tom Barlow 7.0 (2nd year)

C Mike McGeary 6.7 (3rd year)

1896 Hall of Fame Ballot

 

 photo HOF 1896 Ballot Part 1.png

 

 photo HOF 1896 Ballot Part 2.png

 

Three time Most Valuable Player Ross Barnes is making his debut on the Hall of Fame ballot after a 19 year career in which Barnes hit .310 with 693 RBI and 973 runs scored.  Barnes added 522 stolen bases and was a 15 time All-Star, adding 12 Silver Slugger Awards.  Barnes added 8 Gold Gloves and won three World Championships. 

 

Another three time MVP Award winner, George Hall, is also making his debut on the Hall of Fame ballot.  Hall was a career .308 hitter, driving in 702 runs while scoring 950 runs in his career.  Hall won 3 Gold Gloves, 8 Silver Slugger Awards, and went to 14 All-Star games. 

 

While both Ezra Sutton and Lip Pike were within 3 percent of making the Hall of Fame last year I think that the presence of Barnes and Hall will hurt their Hall of Fame chances. 

 

JAWS Score

Tom Barlow: 15.1

Ross Barnes: 37.3

George Bradley: 32.6

John Clapp: 8.5

Charlie Eden: 5.0

The 1898 Hall of Fame ballot will be a small one, with three newcomers joining nine returning players.  

 

Cap Anson lead the list of newcomers with a .292 career batting average, 1010 RBI, and 1288 runs scored to go along with 593 stolen bases.  Only two retired players have more hits than Cap Anson and his 1997 hits, and neither of those players (Harry Stovey and Levi Meyerle) have appeared on the ballot yet.  Anson won two MVP Awards during his career, eight Gold Gloves, nine Silver Sluggers, and went to 18 All-Star games.  With a career WAR of 55.9 Anson also has above average HOF metrics - 43.8 JAWS, 58 Black Ink, 340 Gray Ink, 68 HOF Standards, 459 HOF Monitor. 

 

Jim McCormick finished his career with a 243-193 record to go along with a 2.69 ERA.  McCormick won Pitcher of the Year in 1882 when he went 31-11 with a 1.82 ERA.  McCormick went to 8 All-Star Games and won two Silver Slugger Awards.  McCormick currently sits in 25th place in career wins.  Of the 24 pitchers ahead of him three are already in the Hall of Fame (Al Pratt, George Zettlein, Jim Britt), one is not yet eligible (Daisy Davis), and the rest are still active.

I mentioned earlier that I like to stick to a regular schedule with updates, unless life gets in the way.  Unfortunately April is going to be a bad month with life getting in the way.  I had an unexpected trip added to my calendar this week, and have two more scheduled this month.  So I'll pause here with a cliff hanger, and pick things back up either Wednesday or Thursday night with the results of the 1898 ballot....

271 game winner Daisy Davis will be making his debut on the 1901 ballot this year.  Davis had a 271-227 record with a 2.82 ERA during his career, striking out 2080 batters in 4344 innings.  Davis won the Pitcher of the Year Award in 1885 when he went 38-16 with a 1.59 ERA, and was selected for six All-Star teams.  Davis had a late start to his career, making his debut as a 25 year old, but over the next 10 years Davis won more than 20 games all but one year.  Davis was better than average on 3 of the 5 Hall of Fame metrics.

 

Also appearing on the ballot for the first time is CF Harry Stovey, who hit .287 for his career with 190 home runs, 1271 RBI, 1199 runs scored, and a career WAR of 64.9.  Stovey won the MVP Award in 1887 and won 6 Gold Gloves and 6 Silver Slugger Awards while going to 13 All-Star games.  Stovey was also a member of four World Champion teams.  Stovey beat the average Hall of Famer score on 4 of 5 metrics.
