Notes: Each voting cycle, qualified members of the BBWAA name no more than 10 eligible players whom they consider worthy of Hall of Fame honors. To be enshrined, a player must be named on at least 75% of the voters' ballots. Currently, players are removed from the ballot if they are named on fewer than 5% of ballots or have been on the ballot 15 times without election.
X means off ballot for future elections. HOF means they were selected to the Hall of Fame in a future election.

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.
