Notes: A small committee of high-ranking MLB executives and, later, veteran sportswriters, charged with electing 19th-century players, managers, and executives. Sporadically voting over an 11-year period, they inducted nearly 30 individuals into the Hall of Fame before disbanding, leading to the formation of the Veterans Committee in 1953.
