Everyone who voted

Below is a list of the 262 people who voted in my project on the 25 most important people in baseball history.

A lot of voters provided details about themselves. Voters represent a broad cross-section of the baseball world: fans, researchers, journalists, bloggers, even a former MLB player.

Thanks again to everyone who voted!

One thought on “Everyone who voted

  1. I enjoyed reading about the 25 most influential players and scanning the list of everyone who voted. Another interesting topic would be ranking the 25 greatest MLB postseason games. Were there postseasons that had more than one of the 25 greatest postseason games? Does the Don Larsen 1956 World Series Game 5 perfect game make the list and if so where does it rank against games that are remembered for clutch hitting and home runs?
