1936, New Candidates

1936 New Candidates

1936 reach guideIn 1936, eight new slots open up for would-be HoMErs. After electing a record-setting nine players in 1926, we elected a record-low two in 1931. So we are now carrying over one slot from 1901, two from 1906, two from 1921, and five from 1931, which gives us 18 total slots in 1931. The following star-studded list of 29 players are now eligible in addition to those whose eligibility has begun since 1901. Eligibility is perpetual.

F = Hall of Fame member
M = Hall of Merit member
S = Hall of Stats member
