3. Browning
4. Galvin
5. Williamson
6. Rusie
7. Richardson
8. Mullane
9. Tiernan
10. Welch

Terry’s ballot:

1. Billy Hamilton- He’ll get in so easily that he’s going to be forgotten here every bit as much as he’s been forgotten by history
2. Bobby Mathews
3. Pete Browning
4. Amos Rusie-
Somewhere between McDowell and Koufax; I’m not convinced he was as close to Koufax as popularly believed, but clearly above McDowell and a worthy selection
5. Bob Caruthers
6. Hardy Richardson
7. Mike Tiernan
8. Tony Mullane
9. Mickey Welch
10. Pud Galvin

Honorable Mention
Elmer Smith- Not a superstar but a very good player for a long time, and a really good pitcher for a couple of years too. Not a Hall of Famer by any stretch, but worthy of mention
Jack Clements
Jack Stivetts

Need convincing
Cupid Childs- Poor man’s Hardy Richardson, defensive stats are mediocre. Only thing about him that’s unique is his name
Tip O’Neill
Ned Williamson
