Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Atlanta Braves who first came into fruition as the Boston Red Stockings, a charter member of the National League. After multiple name changes, they settled on the name of the Braves in the early 1910’s. The team would relocate to Milwaukee in 1953 and then to Atlanta in 1966. Despite their longevity, they have only won three World Series (1914, 1957 & 1995).
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
- Advanced Statistics.
- Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National League.
- Playoff accomplishments.
- Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2018 Season.
The complete list can be found here,but as always we announce our top five in this article. They are:
- Eddie Mathews
We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.
As always we thank you for your support.
