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.

NAME 1ST PL POINTS
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
