No one of note dropped from the ballot.

Bob’s ballot:

I’ll admit that I didn’t put as much thought into this ballot as I usually do. The Top 2 were obvious to me, and from there I just repeated last year’s ballot, and just throwing in Rizzuto where I thought he belonged. Apologies to Irvin and Brown for not taking the time to rate them accurately. I’ll get to them next year.

1. Robinson
2. Feller
3. Medwick
4. Rizzuto
5. Boudreau
6. Gordon
7. Newhouser
8. Kiner
9. Ruffing
10. Lyons
