Who is the greatest shortstop of all-time?

Cal Ripken

With the retirement of Derek Jeter, I thought it would be appropriate to ask the BBBWARAOAAE, “Who is the greatest shortstop of all-time?” In an extremely close race, Cal Ripken edged out Honus Wagner 48-47, with Jeter finishing third. As of this writing, all eligible shortstops named in the poll have been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

1. Cal Ripken 6 48
2. Honus Wagner 4 47
3. Derek Jeter 18
4t. Ernie Banks 14
4t. Ozzie Smith 14
4t. Barry Larkin 14
7t. Alex Rodriguez 1 5
7t. Luis Aparicio 5
9. Luke Appling 4
