Uh Oh Stinky's wrong again!!!! I'm pretty sure it's the catcher Johnny Kling, he of a career 20 homeruns and .319 OBP(has to be one of the worst slash lines in the Hall). I was looking at the list a few months ago after a different Cubs fact, and I think he beat out Brown, Evers, and Chance by a few votes each.

Correct! Kling is the man.

The voting is just something that always intrigued me. He got (slightly, granted) more votes than the 4 future hall of famers. And these were guys voting who probably actually saw all those guys play.
