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. Changed to 10 times prior to the 2015 election.

"X" means off ballot for future elections. "HOF" means they were selected to the Hall of Fame in a future election.

Notes: A committee of high-ranking baseball officials charged with the selection of inductees "for outstanding service to base ball apart from playing the game." Seven individuals were elected via the Centennial Commission, most of whom were inducted into the Hall of Fame posthumously.
