Hall of Fame Shares and Win Shares by Team – Douglas Byzewski

I remember when I was a kid and the game programs would list the hall of famers who played on the team saying you got to watch these hall of famers and could be watching them now. They listed a few guys who didn’t play that much for the team, sometimes showing a player who played for the team for two months before he retired. I decided to find out the number of hall of famers there are for all 30 teams based on a formula (called hall of fame shares), I developed using win shares.

I started the formula for hall of fame shares:

 

  • I recorded (by hand) the number of win shares for hall of fame player (221 total players) by team for each year the player played. I found this in my win share book and in BJOL for players who played after 2001.
  • I then looked for anything else that should be considered for hall of fame shares. I thought of two things, post season play and awards. I eliminated awards because if the player received an award most of the time they would have a high amount of win shares. I did include post season play as follows. If a players team won the World Series I multiplied his win shares by one and a half, for playing in the World Series I multiplied the win shares by 1 and a quarter and for making the playoffs I multiplied the win shares by 1 and an eighth. On all three of these I rounded down to the nearest integer.
  • Lastly, I calculated the number of “hall of fame” points for each team the player played for and assigned a percentage to each team. For example Hank Aaron:
Hank Aaron
Team Win Shares Bonus Total Total Team
1954 Braves 13 13 13
1955 Braves 29 29 42
1956 Braves 30 30 72
1957 Braves 35 17 52 124
1958 Braves 32 8 40 164
1959 Braves 38 38 202 Braves 658 97.92%
1960 Braves 35 35 237 Brewers 14 2.08%
1961 Braves 35 35 272 0 0.00%
1962 Braves 34 34 306 672
1963 Braves 41 41 347
1964 Braves 33 33 380
1965 Braves 31 31 411
1966 Braves 27 27 438
1967 Braves 34 34 472
1968 Braves 32 32 504
1969 Braves 38 4 42 546
1970 Braves 25 25 571
1971 Braves 33 33 604
1972 Braves 21 21 625
1973 Braves 20 20 645
1974 Braves 13 13 658  
1975 Brewers 9 9 9
1976 Brewers 5 5 14
643

The numbers from left to right are column 1 the number of win shares each season, column 2 the post season bonus for each player, column 3 the sum of the two columns or hall of fame shares, column 4 the total hall of fame shares for the team. So the Braves get .98 of Hank Aaron and the Brewers get .02 for him. I know I didn’t explain the formula very well, but I have already done the work for each player (220 total players) in the hall of fame. I didn’t do players who made it primary as managers, except John McGraw and Joe Torre. Next I will do a couple of more examples and then start with the ranking of teams from last to first based on the number of hall of famers my formula shows they have.

 

Here is what I did for Babe Ruth:

 

Babe Ruth
Team Win Shares Bonus Total Total Team
1914 Red Sox 1 1 1
1915 Red Sox 23 11 34 35  
1916 Red Sox 37 18 55 90
1917 Red Sox 36   36 126
1918 Red Sox 40 20 60 186
1919 Red Sox 43 43 229 Red Sox 229 24.76%
1920 Yankees 51 51 51 Yankees 694 75.03%
1921 Yankees 53 13 66 117 Braves 2 0.22%
1922 Yankees 29 7 36 153 925
1923 Yankees 55 27 82 235
1924 Yankees 45 45 280
1925 Yankees 13 13 293
1926 Yankees 45 11 56 349
1927 Yankees 45 22 67 416
1928 Yankees 45 22 67 483
1929 Yankees 32 32 515
1930 Yankees 38 38 553
1931 Yankees 38 38 591
1932 Yankees 36 18 54 645
1933 Yankees 29 29 674
1934 Yankees 20   20 694
1935 Braves 2 2 2
756      

 

 

I also have a rule that if a player played for a team that team would get as a minimum .01. Steve Carlton had a few of those the last two years he pitched. So Babe is .75 a Yankee, .24 a Red Sox and .01 a Brave.

One more Roberto Alomar as he played for a lot of teams.

 

Roberto Alomar

1988 Padres 22 22 22

When I put this originally in BJOL, a reader (thank you Tigerlily) suggested I include number of win shares earned by each player. I did that again using the Win Shares book and BJOL. One reader DMBBHF found an error, thank you. I corrected that error and 8 or 9 I found while putting in the number of win shares per team. My worst error was I somehow skipped Kid Nichols. This correction moved up the Braves in the standings.

 

Here is a start of a list of teams:

30 Rockies – No one. The Rockies haven’t had anyone who ever played for them elected to the hall of fame. The closest might have been Dale Murphy. They do have two possibilities for the future Larry Walker and Todd Helton. They are the only one of the 30 teams to never have a hall of famer play for them.

 

29-Marlins Number of Win Shares
Andre Dawson 0.02 6
Mike Piazza 0.01 0
0.03 6

 

The Marlins had Piazza for 5 games before trading him to the Mets. I have a formula combining Hall of Fame Shares and Win Shares just multiply them together. For the Marlins the total would be .18, still in 29th place.

 

28 Rays Number of Win Shares
Wade Boggs 0.03 12
12

 

I gave the Rays the edge over the Marlins as they had the player with the highest total playing for them. I figured they made a better effort getting a good player. It turns out I was correct. The Hall-Win shares number for the Rays is .36.

 

27 Diamondbacks Number of Win Shares
Randy Johnson 0.48 151
Roberto Alomar 0.01 3
0.49 154

 

Randy Johnson helped the Diamondbacks win a World Series. Their Hall-Win shares number is 75.46.

 

26 Blue Jays Number of Win Shares
Roberto Alomar 0.36 120
Paul Molitor 0.17 60
Dave Winfield 0.09 27
Frank Thomas 0.04 18
Ricky Henderson 0.01 3
Phil Niekro 0.01 0
0.68 228

 

Alomar, Molitor, Winfield and Henderson all played on World Series champion Blue Jay’s clubs. Their Hall-Win shares number is 155.04.

 

25 Rangers Number of Win Shares
Fergie Jenkins 0.28 90
Nolan Ryan 0.16 56
Gaylord Perry 0.15 57
Bert Blyleven 0.1 36
Goose Gossage 0.01 3
0.7 242

 

All pitchers. I will tell you now the bottom 14 are the expansion teams and the top 16 teams are the teams that have been around since 1901. The biggest factor in these rankings is time as a franchise. So Texas, one of the four original expansion teams probably should be a little disappointed it to be this low. However there best years have been in the 21st Century. Their Hall-Win shares number is 169.4.

 

24 Royals Number of Win Shares
George Brett 1 432
Orlando Cepeda 0.01 0
Harmon Killebrew 0.01 5
Gaylord Perry 0.01 3
1.03 440

 

Thank goodness for George Brett, who spent his entire career as a Royal. Their Hall-Win shares number is 453.2.

 

23 Mariners Number of Win Shares
Ken Griffy Jr. 0.7 282
Randy Johnson 0.4 135
Gaylord Perry 0.03 13
Goose Gossage 0.02 4
Ricky Henderson 0.01 7
1.16 441

 

They might be adding some more players in the future, with Edgar Martinez and Alex Rodriquez (depending on his steroids issues). Their Hall-Win shares number is 511.56.

 

 

22 Angels Number of Win Shares
Nolan Ryan 0.44 149
Rod Carew 0.27 102
Reggie Jackson 0.13 67
Bert Blyleven 0.09 30
Frank Robinson 0.08 43
Don Sutton 0.07 24
Dave Winfield 0.07 30
Hoyt Wilhelm 0.03 9
Ricky Henderson 0.01 1
Eddie Murray 0.01 0
1.2 455

 

A lot of players but all but Ryan came at the tail end of their career. Their Hall-Win shares number is 546.

 

21 Nationals Number of Win Shares
Gary Carter 0.68 239
Andre Dawson 0.64 216
Pedro Martinez 0.24 65
Tony Perez 0.13 49
Randy Johnson 0.01 2
1.7 571

 

Basically some really good talent from the Expo days. When Raines is elected they will be over 2. Their Hall-Win shares number is 970.7.

 

 

20 Astros Number of Win Shares
Craig Biggio 1 428
Nolan Ryan 0.32 105
Joe Morgan 0.31 176
Don Sutton 0.08 25
Nellie Fox 0.04 14
Randy Johnson 0.03 11
Robin Roberts 0.03 11
Eddie Mathews 0.02 10
1.83 780
   

 

If Bagwell is elected they would move to 17th in both hall of fame and Hall-Win Shares number. Their Hall-Win shares number is 1,427.4.

 

19 Mets Number of Win Shares
Tom Seaver 0.7 266
Mike Piazza 0.46 147
Gary Carter 0.28 83
Tom Glavine 0.17 58
Pedro Martinez 0.1 28
Nolan Ryan 0.08 24
Eddie Murray 0.07 35
Joe Torre 0.06 18
Roberto Alomar 0.05 23
Richie Ashburn 0.04 12
Ricky Henderson 0.03 17
Duke Snider 0.03 13
Willie Mays 0.02 16
Warren Spahn 0.01 4
2.1 744

 

The Mets are 18th in hall of fame numbers, but the Brewers edge them out in the combine number. Their Hall-Win shares number is 1,562.4.

 

18 Brewers Number of Win Shares
Robin Yount 1 415
Paul Molitor 0.74 313
Rollie Fingers 0.21 41
Don Sutton 0.07 23
Hank Aaron 0.02 14
2.04 806
   

They kept their two young guys longer than the Expos. Their Hall-Win shares number is 1,644.24.

 

17 Padres Number of Win Shares
Tony Gwynn 1 398
Dave Winfield 0.4 172
Rollie Fingers 0.23 49
Goose Gossage 0.18 42
Roberto Alomar 0.15 64
Ozzie Smith 0.15 52
Willie McCovey 0.1 45
Gaylord Perry 0.09 34
Ricky Henderson 0.07 42
Greg Maddox 0.03 14
Mike Piazza 0.03 11
2.43 923
   

Bill has talked about the talent the Padres have developed. They helped San Diego be the number 1 expansion team. Their Hall-Win shares number is 2,242.89.

 

16 Twins Number of Win Shares
Walter Johnson 1 560
Kirby Puckett 1 281
Harmon Killebrew 0.99 366
Sam Rice 0.98 320
Rod Carew 0.73 282
Bert Blyleven 0.53 178
Joe Cronin 0.53 173
Heinie Manush 0.44 122
Rick Ferrell 0.33 68
Early Wynn 0.21 66
Stan Coveleski 0.16 40
Ed Delahanty 0.1 37
Paul Molitor 0.09 41
Al Simmons 0.06 27
Tris Speaker 0.03 21
Dave Winfield 0.03 15
Steve Carlton 0.01 0
Lefty Gomez 0.01 0
Clark Griffith 0.01 1
George Sisler 0.01 0
7.25 2598

Again the Twins are 16th of the 16 non-expansion teams. There is always hope with Oliva and Kaat. Their Hall-Win shares number is 18,835.5. Notice they have about 8 times more Hall-win shares than the Padres. Length of time as a franchise is a very important factor in these rankings.

 

 

15 Tigers Number of Win Shares
Charlie Gerhringer 1 383
Al Kaline 1 443
Hal Newhouser 0.97 257
Ty Cobb 0.95 688

I thought the Tigers would have done better. Their Hall-Win shares number is 21,282.03.

 

14 Orioles Number of Win Shares
Jim Palmer 1 312
Cal Ripkin 1 427
Brooks Robinson 1 356

Not as many win shares as the Tigers. The Orioles didn’t become good until they went to Baltimore. Their Hall-Win shares number is 22,151.25.

 

13 Reds Number of Win Shares

The Reds lost .2 points because I had Burleigh Grimes on their team by mistake dropping them behind the Phillies. So they are now the lowest National League team. The National League has the advantage of the 19th Century, which is a bigger advantage than I thought it would be. Their Hall-Win shares number is 26,201.76.

The As developed a lot of hall of famers, but had to give them up early. There one of the two original 16 teams without a hall of fame player play their entire career for them. The other team had four players score higher than Chief Bender.  Their highest player in win shares Ricky Henderson I only have him having 64% of his career as an A. Their Hall-Win shares number is 33,941.6.

I thought the Dodgers would be in the top 5. They aren’t even in the top 5 of the National League. They had a lot of great-great players with short careers, thus a lack of win shares. Their Hall-Win shares number is 43,494.31.

The Red Sox are only 9th in hall of fame shares. They have a lot of win shares by their players, in a large part thanks to Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski. Their Hall-Win shares number is 46,534.74.

The Braves are the highest team without a hall of famer who played their whole career for them. They seem to trade great players as their careers are ending. Have they ever got a good amount of talent for any of them? I forgot Kid Nichols when I did this originally. He made it easy to have the Braves ahead of St. Louis. Their Hall-Win shares number is 72,625.7.

I think the Cubs benefited as much as anyone from the 19th Century. Their Hall-Win shares number is 85,825.98.

The Yankees have more career hall of famers who stayed on one team by far. They shouldn’t feel too bad for coming in second. The National League had a big start and the hall of fame is always behind. For example Derek Jeter should be elected on his first ballot. Their Hall-Win shares number is 103,145.12.

 

 

Tigerlily and I thought the Yankees would have more win shares than the Giants. Boy were we wrong.

Do the Giants thank Frank Frisch or the 19th Century for their victory? I think it is a combination of things. They had the most players listed. Their Hall-Win shares number is 130,491.
