This is a two part series looking back at the top 20 seasons since 1903 by retired hitters not currently in the Hall of Fame.  You will see a number of familiar names here and some that even the most knowledgeable baseball fan has never heard of.  To see, the top fantasy baseball seasons, please see our Historical Fantasy Baseball Player Rater.  MVFH is an award we made up that stands for Most Valuable Fantasy Hitter.  You can see the full list of retroactive award winners here.

Please, blog, may I have some more?

In this series of Hall of Fame nomination-based posts, we’re going to focus on specific roles/positions.  We’ll be reviewing both players on the HOF ballot as well as non-HOFers who we feel deserve re-consideration.

This second post focuses on middle of the lineup hitters – with Jim Rice, Andre Dawson, and Mark McGwire being the highest profile of the bunch.
