Lee Smith and Harold Baines were elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the Today’s Game Era Committee.
Smith was named on all 16 ballots while Baines was named on 12 of 16 ballots (75 percent), with both reaching the 75-percent threshold necessary for election. The Today’s Game Era Committee considered a ballot of six former players, three former managers and one former executive whose contributions to the game were most significant from 1988 through the present. The Today’s Game Era Committee held meetings in Las Vegas, site of Baseball’s Winter Meetings.
Smith and Baines will be joined in the Hall of Fame Class of 2019 by any electees who emerge from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America voting, which will be announced on January 22.
Learn more about Lee Smith’s life and career at the SABR BioProject, in this article written by Neal Poloncarz. Harold Baines’s SABR biography is being written by Tim Deale.
The 2019 SABR national convention will take place in San Diego from June 26-30. To coincide with the convention, the summer 2019 issue of The National Pastime will focus on baseball in the San Diego/Mexicali region, giving us a chance to expand research topics internationally. Research articles may be historical, biographical, or analytical (stats welcome), but please avoid personal narrative.
This issue of The National Pastime will be edited by publications director Cecilia Tan. She will be taking queries and abstracts until December 15, 2018, and will make assignments no later than January 1, 2019. First drafts of articles will be due no later than March 1 and rewrites (if needed) will be due by April 15.
To query, email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “TNP Query:” and a key word or two on your subject. For example: “TNP Query: The Western Metal Supply Company.”

The SABR Team Ownership Histories Project is a joint effort of SABR’s Business of Baseball Committee and the BioProject. The intention is to keep its essays up-to-date and to provide as much detail as possible about the organization and composition of ownership groups, franchise sales, relocations, stadiums, and other issues that provide the financial context for team success on the field. One new article was published this week:
- Miami Marlins team ownership history, by Stephen R. Keeney
This project is a continuing effort. Some team articles have been assigned, but anyone who wishes to contribute is encouraged to contact Andy McCue at email@example.com. Thanks to Len Levin for his work in copy editing all of these essays. To find out which essays still need authors, or to read author guidelines, click here.
