About, ONEHOF, Ron’s Hall of Fame

Welcome to a web page that will someday, Lord willing, have All-Star teams for the whole of Major League Baseball history. I’m Ron Kitchell and I didn’t put a lot of thought into picking these teams, using Baseball Reference and WAR for the most part, but my hope isn’t necessarily 100 percent accuracy, but a look at the game as time marches by.

ONEHOF (Season Write-Ups)
