The 1901 HoME election cycle—our first—is under way! We’ll be electing as many as 7 candidates whose playing careers ended by 1895. This is by far our widest swatch of players, since the remaining elections cover at most 5 years of retirees. We’ve narrowed the list down to the following 54 players for closer scrutiny, though, of course, all players who meet the eligibility rules are perpetually eligible.
ELIGIBLE IN 1901

We are currently scheduled to vote on June 19th, and to post results here on June 21st. An edited and condensed transcript of our discussions will be posted as well so that you can tell us how you’d vote.
It’s possible we’ll move more quickly than that, and if we do we’ll post the new date here and update our schedule document.
