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 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.
