    There are not very many obvious selections since this is based entirely on opinion. I mean, I am not a fan of Reggie Jackson. Or Joe Dimaggio. Or Roger Maris for that matter. I probably wouldn't vote for them unless they were matched up against someone like Derek Jeter.

    So this is the current list, with some duplicates removed, but I'm not guaranteeing having gotten all of them yet. Once I've gone through and added the necessary links, I'll make sure any remaining duplicates are removed and then randomize the order and we can get the tournament under way. :)
