2018 Results (written by Dan Marks)

The ballots have been submitted and tallied.  Here are the results….
There were 64 ballots submitted this year, surpassing the 55 that were submitted in 2017.  Thanks to everyone who took the time to submit a ballot and for continuing to support the memory of our friend Bob Gregory and his brainchild.
Remember that points were awarded MVP-style:  10 players per ballot, in order, with 14 points for each 1stplace, 11 points for 2nd place, 8 points for 3rd, then 7-6-5-4-3-2-1.
Below are the results, sorted by point total.  Also, it shows the breakdown of how many of each “place” they received (# of 1st place votes, # of 2nd place votes, etc.), as well as the number of total votes (that is, how many ballots that the player was included on), the % of ballots in which the candidate was included, and the total points received.
No player was named on all 64 ballots, and 37 players received at least one vote.
According to the structure of this voting, the top 2 point recipients are inducted into the Gallery of Renown.  Congratulations to Chipper Jones and Tom Glavine!  We’ll start working on the plaques immediately.
Chipper was a runaway winner, earning more than half of the first place votes.  Jim Thome gave Glavine a run for his money, but had to settle for 3rd place.
